Exciting Football Weekend for Week 8 in the Ancient Eight
PRINCETON, N.J. -- Week 8 for the Ancient Eight on the gridiron is poised to be another great Saturday headlined by Brown at Yale, both at 3-1 in conference play, squaring off at high Noon on the YES Network.
The Brown-Yale game features two of the Ivy League's top passers in the Bears' senior Kyle Newhall-Caballero (231.1 yards per game, 11 TDs) and the Bulldogs' senior Patrick Witt (199.0 ypg, 11 TDs). Witt was recently named a 2011 National Football Foundation Scholar-Athlete and Campbell Trophy finalist and a finalist for the prestigious Rhodes Scholarship.
Harvard, atop the Ivy standings at an undefeated 4-0 in League play, travels to Columbia in a game that could see head coach Tim Murphy become the all-time winningest coach in school history. A Crimson victory would move him past Joe Restic with 118 wins and move him into seventh place on the Ivy League's career coaching wins chart.
Archrivals Princeton and Penn battle at Franklin Field with the Quakers looking to keep pace with Harvard, Brown and Yale to keep the Ivy trophy in Philadelphia for a third-straight season. Both teams feature dual-threat quarterbacks in the Princeton senior Tommy Wornham (164.6 pass ypg, 20 rush ypg) and Penn junior Billy Ragone (166.1 pass ypg, 52.7 rush ypg) and potent ground attacks bolstered by the Tiger freshman Chuck Dibilio (99.1 ypg) and the Quaker junior Brandon Colavita (95.2 ypg).
League-leaders clash in Hanover, N.H. with Cornell, led by sophomore quarterback Jeff Mathews (296.6 ypg), taking on Dartmouth, led by senior tailback Nick Schwieger (108.4 ypg), at the Big Green's Memorial Field.
