The Ivies provide a rich history for today's game

We're feeling a little academic this week, so what better place to shift the focus than to the Ivy League?

If you'll pass the pointer, we'll provide a little history -- important but little-known history in today's grand picture of college football.

In the first Associated Press poll, the writers voted three Ivy League teams in the Top 20: Penn (No. 10), Yale (No. 12) and Dartmouth (No. 13). In fact, in the first three polls, Dartmouth also finished No. 7 in 1937 and No. 20 in 1938.
