I am not doubting the accuracy of your viewership numbers, but I do have a hard time understanding what are the causes for such a large decline from 2015 to 2017, which represents a 36% decline in viewership. This Ivy League football season was very competitive overall with greater parity among teams compared to the prior years. Being a person interested in data analytics, I am not sure what would be the explanation for such a dramatic decline in viewership.

Ask the grim reaper. The Ivy League fan base is very old and dying off.

hate to admit it but I think you have something there. I just don't think the young people are into Ivy League football. There is just to many other things out there to occupy their time. Plus with all the concerns with CTE, it is not helping putting people in the stands. Ivy League football just does not seem to be the event that it enjoyed many years ago. I will expose my 3 year old to it over the coming years and hopes he enjoys it as much as I have but realistically I am not sure if Ivy League football has a foundation to capture and generate a new fan base to sustain it in the coming years.
