Princeton awarded itself a bunch of "National Championships" in the 19th Century even though they weren't playing other national powers (H & Y) over rules disputes.

Even if Harvard does print themselves rings and makes banners, the actual trophy isn't spending any time in Cambridge next season--unless Princeton is willing to share some if its months hosting the trophy with Harvard.

Slightly different subject, but I’ve always wondered why the Ivy League doesn’t use head to head to award the championship to one team if there is a tie at the end of the season.

The first tied championship was in 1961 between Harvard and Columbia and...

.... Columbia won the head-on game.

Draw your own conclusions from that.

Until conference championship games became common, most power conferences awarded co-championships and used head to head only to decide who would go to the conference affiliated Bowl game. If the Ivy League ever woke up and sent a team to the FCS playoffs, I'm sure head to head would decide the league representative in case of co-champions.
