The Harvard vs Cornell match is the next one in the Ivy League matchups. Harvard is so far (and quite the way one will expect) going really well. They are 2-1 with 1-0 in Ivy League. In contrast, Cornell hasn’t won a single game. They are 0-3 with 0-1 in Ivy League. Do we believe the stats blindly? Of course not. But there is some undercurrent that tells us that Cornell has no more chance what pure luck can bring.
Harvard has better everything. Better offense. Better defense. Also, they have better players and team coordination.
It is not hard to predict a safe Harvard win. The Big red might try to reinforce their defense further (Colgate couldn’t go past 270 yards of offense) but the Crimson will still go right through it, most probably.
The key to a Harvard victory is comfortable and safe play. They just have to keep their composure and deliver their regular performance.
Cornell is surely a driven team. If their passion for winning drives them enough, who knows, we might see some miracle? Not to say that it only takes a miracle to defeat Harvard. Ivy League games are different from the rest. Here, Cornell might actually have the upper hand. They are further driven by fact that their victory will bring them right back into the Ivy League fray.
6 Ivy matchups and 7 regular matchups are left. Cornell might have zero wins, but they have a lot to play, and consequently, a lot of room to prove themselves and get back on the track.
Their most recent defeat has been against Colgate, which was a 21-7. Nevertheless, if Cornell play their cards right and sift through the Harvard defense, they might be able to make it.
