Kudos to Princeton and Dartmouth.

Beware that a phenomenon I've noticed over past years is that Ivy Squads tend to drop in the NCAA rankings near the end of the season. I suspect this is because the NCAA wants to strengthen the appearance that the best teams are competing in the postseason tournament. Any loss by an Ivy squad will be a death knell and handled in a heavy handed way.

This certainly used to happen in the FBS polls almost every week, where the immediate opponents of top teams suddenly moved up, often sneaking into 24th or 25th spots.
