Princeton (6-0, 3-0) at Cornell (2-4, 1-2), Friday November 1st, 6:00 PM, Schoellkopf Field, Ithaca, NY, ESPNU, WatchESPN (subscription req’d)

Columbia (2-4, 1-2) at Yale (5-1, 2-1), Saturday November 2nd, 12:o0 PM, Yale Bowl, New Haven, CT, ESPN+ (subscription req’d)
The Bulldogs have plenty to play for, not least a chance at a co-Ivy League Championship and a perfect 2-0 against their rivals Harvard and Princeton. Tricky Columbia comes to town, but Yale is trending in the right direction. Yale 31, Columbia 13
Dartmouth (6-0, 3-0) at Harvard (4-2, 2-1), Saturday November 2nd, 1:00 PM, Harvard Stadium, Cambridge, MA, ESPN+ (subscription req’d)
Can Dartmouth keep up their torrid play and not slip up in Cambridge? The Big Green have been on a mission since their agonizingly close loss at Princeton last season, and haven’t lost a single game since, and Dartmouth is a powerhouse defensively. This game will see Harvard throw everything but the kitchen sink, and it will be close but not close enough. Dartmouth 20, Harvard 13
Brown (1-5, 0-3) at Penn (2-4, 0-3), Saturday November 2nd, 1:00 PM, Franklin Field, Philadelphia, PA, NBC Sports Philadelphia, ESPN+ (subscription req’d)
Penn is further along than Brown, and RB Karekin Brooks should romp. Penn 34, Brown 3
