It doesn't get much bigger than the two games the Harvard Crimson have to close out their 2010 slate: before the always-dramatic matchup with Yale next week, Harvard has a shot at first-place in the Ivy League this weekend in a showdown with the Penn Quakers in Philadelphia. Here is how the three teams left with a shot at the Ivy League title stand:
1. Penn 5-0 (7-1 overall)
T-2. Harvard 4-1 (6-2 overall)
T-2. Yale 4-1 (6-2 overall)
If Harvard loses this week, the Crimson are eliminated from a shot at the Ivy crown. A win would put Harvard in prime position.
Here are the scenarios:
Penn wins, Yale loses - Penn wins Ivy title
Penn wins, Yale wins - Penn clinches at least shared title, Yale can win other half if they beat Harvard + Penn loses to Cornell.
Harvard wins, Yale loses - Harvard one win from clinching share of title with Penn, Yale eliminated.
Harvard wins, Yale wins - winner of Harvard/Yale gets at least share of title, Penn must beat Cornell to grab other share.
