Yale, Harvard share top spot

The cat is out of the bag a few hours early as the Ivy League posted on its website the news that Yale and Harvard were co-favorites to win the league title.

Here is a result of the voting:
1. Harvard (8) — 124
Yale (8) — 124
3. Brown — 99
4. Penn (1) — 85
5. Princeton — 58
6. Cornell — 54
7. Dartmouth — 47
8. Columbia — 21

Also The Sports Network named Yale senior running back Mike McLeod as the third best tailback in the Football Championship Subdivision. Liberty's Rashad Jennings, who ran for 1,113 yard in 2007, was picked first followed by Northern Iowa's Corey Lewis, McLeod, North Dakota State's Tyler Roehl and Tennessee State's Tennessee Williams. Missing from the top five is Colgate's Jordan Scott, the FCS's leading rusher with an average of 170.45 yards a game. McLeod was third nationally with 161.9 yards/game (1,619 yards in 10 games). McLeod heads into his senior season needing 1,170 yard to become the Ivy League's all-time leading rusher. In conference games McLeod needs 1,090 yards to finish as the career leader.
