* (the number in brackets is the Bassett national rank - among all FBS/FCS teams)
Apparently they can be ranked that high in FCS...at least that is where Stephenson had them (as used by Bassett).
There are 130 FBS and 126 FCS schools/teams. (256 in all). In checking, I find that schools who play only FCS opponents are rankled using the FCS rank. Those who play one or more FBS opponents are given a rank in a combined list.
Example: Holy Cross is 174 in the FBS/FCS combined list. HC is #54 ion the FCS only list.

Dartmouth is a 14 point favorite over Yale and Yale's Offense went through our Defense like a hot knife through butter. I don't care how good the foliage is, I'm glad we're not playing Dartmouth this year. Let's keep getting better game by game and then do some damage in the FCS playoffs.
I hope we resume the Dartmouth series at some point, but I tend to agree with you ls, the Big Green are very formidable right now. Caught some of their Penn game last week, haven't seen Princeton this year, but I think Dartmouth is probably the team to beat in the Ancient VIII this year.
I believe Dartmouth feels much the same. I can remember when the series was terminated and reading posts (on a Dartmouth board) by the many Dartmouth fans who were upset about it. They did see HC as a good rival.
[PS: Because of the confusion (my fault to a large measure), in the future I will post only the Stephenson FCS rank for FCS teams and the FBS rank for Navy and Syracuse. Bassett used the Stephensomn numbers - which rely heavily on offenseive output of a team. ]
