How do you think Brown’s athletic program compares to Princeton’s? How do the Big Green stack up against the Bulldogs? Well, if you’re judging these Ivy League athletes and programs based on how many Ivy League championships the universities earned in total this past academic year, then Princeton University is the runaway winner with fifteen Ivy League titles across both men’s and women’s varsity sports. In second place is Yale University with 7 titles followed by a three-way tie between Harvard, Cornell, and Penn with 4, Dartmouth with 2, and Brown and Columbia with 0. That’s right. Zero. From football to baseball to swimming to softball and crew, Brown and Columbia won a combined zero Ivy League championships this past year.
