Ivy Power Rankings Week 4

1) Harvard

The Crimson may very well be the best FCS team in America. I say that because I have little doubt Harvard would beat Lehigh handily and the Mountain Hawks are ranked 10th in the FCS. Saturday's destruction of Cornell was stunning, especially when you consider how they pulled away in the fourth quarter.

2) Brown

Looking better and better, not just because of the scrappy way the Bears have won the last two weeks, but also because their two-TD loss to Harvard doesn't look so bad right now.

3) Cornell

Still a great offense and fun to watch, but the collapse at Harvard made it clear that this is just not a championship team.

4) Dartmouth

Finally got over a tremendous hump by whipping Yale Saturday. Could jump as high as #2 in the next couple of weeks.

5) Princeton

Could I have very unwisely underrated the Tigers? They're almost making me a believer after that whipping of Lafayette in Easton Saturday night.

6) Penn

It's possible the worst is over for the Quakers and they'll start their usual march to at least the top 3 in the next few weeks. But for now, Penn just doesn't look right.

7) Yale

Looking weaker by the week, and the possible loss of Tyler Varga due to NCAA rules would slam them down further.

8) Columbia

The Lions just aren't showing the ability to score. Can't win if you don't score points.
