There was only one upset last week, previously unranked Middlebury knocking off Northeastern. Middlebury, owner of two DII National Championships, is in its second season in DI-AA and appears to be ready to compete at this level.

The rest of the ranked teams in action, Stony Brook, St. Bonaventure, Bowling Green and American International College (AIC), won. All but St. Bonaventure did so in a walk.

The team knocking loudest on the Top 25 door is Brown. 2-0 in Ivy League play, Brown has been impressive so far, beating teams by blowout scores similar to Dartmouth’s.
