Dartmouth Claims Its Slice of Ivy League Title (‘Valley News’)



In a breathtaking final few minutes on Saturday afternoon, Big Green football beat Princeton to win Dartmouth’s share of the Ivy League Title, reports the Valley News.

“Most in an announced crowd of 6,208 went bonkers, chief among them members of Dartmouth’s 1990 Ivy League title team, who were honored at halftime,” the newspaper writes. “Also sprinkled throughout the stands were dozens of former players from recent years who helped the program climb from the despair of a winless season in 2008 to this year’s nine-victory campaign. The Big Green shares the title with Pennsylvania, which beat visiting Cornell on Saturday, and Harvard, which won at Yale.

“‘How fun is that?’” Dartmouth coach Buddy Teevens ’79 exulted to linebacker Will McNamara ’16 and receiver Ryan McManus ’15 as the seniors joined him at the postgame news conference in Floren Varsity House. Their team finished 9-1 overall and 6-1 in Ancient Eight play,” reports the Valley News.
