Harvard defeated Dartmouth 12-3 in the Ivy League Championship, serving the Big Green its first loss of the season and gaining the #1 ranking as reward. The swap pushed Army down one spot, which worked well with Notre Dame College’s advancement. The Falcons had lost 21-14 to the Black Knights and then followed with a 42-12 win over AIC for the upgrade. Additionally, Norwich and Brown moved closer together following the Cadets’ 29-24 win over the Bears.

There is still one more weekend of regular-season play, and then on Nov. 10, the higher seeds will host their respective Tier 1 quarterfinal. The Tier 2 championship will also occur Nov. 10 at a TBA location. The Tier 1 final four will occur Nov. 16 and 18 at Dartmouth.

* Remember: Records only reflect games against fellow NCAA teams. Teams like Army and Bowdoin have a healthy amount of non-league games on their respective schedules.
