Ivy League Football Week 5 Preview

Georgetown at Harvard - In this Friday night tilt, two undefeated teams will do battle. Harvard is the best team in the Ivies and one of the top teams nationally. Semar Smith is very difficult to stop at running back. Georgetown is off to its best start ever at 3-0. The Crimson is at home and has far too much offensive firepower, especially against a team which had a great deal of trouble scoring against Columbia, after a strong first period.
Harvard 34, Georgetown 30
Penn at Dartmouth - Penn, along with Yale, has been a huge disappointment. They were sloppy on offense last week, losing to a weak Fordham team, 31-17. The home team rolls at night.
Dartmouth 28, Penn 21
Lehigh at Yale – This may be the mismatch of the weekend. Lehigh quarterback Nick Shafnisky has been unstoppable all season. He threw for 461 yards against a good Princeton team. Yale has been woeful against the pass.
Lehigh 38, Yale 12
Brown at Rhode Island - Two very sub-par teams will take the field in Kingston. Brown has more offensive firepower. Either team can win. Brown quarterback Kyle Moreno might be the difference. 
Brown 14, Rhode Island 13
Cornell at Colgate - Cornell is the surprise team of the Ivies. They are off to a 2-0 start and handled Yale easily. Quarterback Dalton Banks was Ivy Offensive Player of the Week, as he threw for 306 yards and was 15-16 in the first half. Colgate is good and this is a rivalry game.
Colgate 17, Cornell 10
Princeton at Columbia - Princeton has Chad Kanoff and Columbia does not. That says it all. Columbia is far improved from last season and played a good Georgetown team tough defensively in the second half, but does not have Princeton’s talent at the skill positions. They do have freshman Josh Wainwright, who is improving by the week.
