Now that early season results are in, some interesting match ups loom on Ivy OOC schedules. Rhode Island taking Cent Michigan into OT indicates that Harvard and Brown may not have such a cupcake after all. Colgate win over Cal Poly indicates tough matchup for Big Red. Villanova close call at Lehigh shows that Mountain Hawks will be a tough challenge for Yale and Penn. Folks on this board already have commented on Holy Cross being a tough opponent for Yale and Dartmouth. Haven't checked on Delaware, but Cornell will have hands full with them as well. Rest of OOC games are pretty unexceptional, right?

Too bad the Ivies must sit out early season action, perpetual wallflowers at the dance.

Or you could look at it as the Ivy League could also play competitively against Central Michigan, Cal Poly, Villanova and UConn. Yale's 2013 victory over ranked Cal Poly and Penn's 2015 victory over top 5 ranked Villanova indicate that's the case.

That is why the early OOC schedule is so unpredictable.
Having two full games is a huge advantage, especially for freshmen who are not used to the speed, size, and pace (timeouts) of the college game.
