GRR: Ivy League
Dartmouth's win over Army has a lot of their supporters talking, but there's more to talk about in the Ivy League.
Dartmouth celebrated Homecoming Weekend with an upset defeat of West Point 21-10 Saturday in Hanover, NH.
Dartmouth was smart in making sure they got points from pressure, and with captain Mike Weir accurate in his kicking that all wasn't hard to do. Weird slotted two early penalty goals, and then added a drop goal to give the Big Green a 9-0 lead.
One of the more interesting results in men's college rugby was Brown defeating Fordham 38-14.
Fordham is looking like one of the stronger teams in the Liberty Conference, while Brown has been working its way up the Ivy League. Well, Brown took a big step here.
Princeton University has announced that it is following some of its Ivy League peers in making women's rugby an NCAA varsity sport.

In the late 1800s colleges played a form of football that was essentially rugby. Over time they adopted rules variations (much as Aussie Rules, Gaelic Football, and Association Football did) and turned it into American Football.
