Week 10 Picks

Last Week: 3-0!

Overall: 27-12

Princeton over Dartmouth

This has been one of those games over the years where you can throw out the records coming in, because the underdogs always seem to play a lot better than expected. But at the end of the day, you have to lean towards the Tigers because they are at home and they have a great runner in Jordan Culbreath. But with 0-10 staring them in the face, the Big Green will give Princeton a fight.

Penn over Cornell

This is another shaky pick for me. Cornell is really a very much better team at home than they are on the road and this game is at Schoelkopf. But Penn has pieced together something of an offense with their replacement QB Kieffer Garton, and Cornell isn't going to pass for 300+ yards against the Quakers.

Harvard over Yale

Yet another tough call here. Harvard should win, but the Crimson have been relying too much on the pass this season and the Elis have the best pass defense in the Ivies. But the Yale pass rush isn't the reason why, the secondary is, and that won't be enough against Harvard's bobbing-and-weaving receiving corps. This could be one of the best games ever in the storied series.

Knowles needs the W and will get it. So does Buddy; I think that he pulls off the upset. Harvard is just too talented for Yale. We play the game of the year, pressure Dougherty and take home the W.

Don't worry Jake--all 7 Boston Globe writers picked the Crimson too. Harvard will pummel the Eli again just like last year and I will love very minute of it.
