Ivy League football traditionally starts a couple of weeks into the regular college football season schedule, but there's been plenty of Ivy League alumni putting in work through two weeks of the NFL season.
Heading into week 3 of the 2017 NFL season, 14 former Ivy Leaguers had spots on NFL rosters or practice squads, led by six from Harvard and two each from Brown and Penn.
