- Seven Ivy League football teams — Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Penn, Princeton and Yale — could tie for first place.
- The conference doesn’t have an end-of-season tournament to determine a sole winner.
- It would be the first time in Ivy League history that seven teams tied.
With two weeks left in the Ivy League football season, seven teams have the ability to finish tied for first place, The Wall Street Journal reported.
Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Penn, Princeton and Yale all have the ability to finish the season tied at 4-3.
Not exactly a superior record, but the Ivy League’s format makes this scenario possible. Each team plays every other team one time, and the season doesn’t end with a conference tournament to determine a champion.
It would be the first time in Ivy League history that seven teams tied for first, although there was a three-way tie in 2015, and a two-way tie in 2016.
