Parting Shot: Jack Stockless

But contributing to the record of Harvard athletics and making memories with the small (yet fearsome) band of fellow sportswriters at 14P has given me some great stories of my own to tell. And I will continue to tell them for years to come.

Men's Basketball Eases By George Washington for Fifth Win

That 11-point halftime lead proved difficult to overcome for George Washington, as the Colonials (3-9) fell behind by as much as 22 with three minutes to play in the contest. Harvard (5-5) walked away with a 75-61 victory to snap a short two-game skid.

Ben Abercrombie Returns to Harvard for The Game

For the first time since the fall of 2017, Ben Abercrombie has returned to Harvard’s campus. The defensive back, who suffered a career-ending injury in his first collegiate game, took in the 135th playing of The Game at Fenway Park.

Hats Off

Harvard Beats Yale in 135th Game, 45-27

In front of a sold-out crowd at Fenway Park, Harvard ended a two year skid against Yale, claiming victory in The Game with a record-breaking offensive performance.

Rolling Along

Transformative Experience

The Game has a new home for 2018. Dave Mellor, head groundskeeper at Fenway Park, and his staff have spent weeks preparing the ballpark for the gridiron battle between Harvard and Yale.

Game in Hand

A Look Back at the Men Who Led Harvard to Beat Yale, 29-29

In The Game of 1968, Frank Champi completed a touchdown pass to Vic Gatto, a play that would set up Harvard's famous 29-29 tie with Yale. But how did those players arrive at that moment, and where did they go once the dust settled on the Crimson's historic comeback?

AROUND THE IVIES: A Day at the Ballpark

In the last trip Around the Ivies for the 2018 football season, check out picks and hard-hitting analysis for the four Ivy League games remaining on this fall's slate.

Many Touchdowns

Football Looks to Break Winless Streak Against Penn

Penn looks to continue its recent winning ways, while Harvard aims to break a three-year stretch of futility against its southernmost Ivy foe.

Flipping Out

Seniors Shine, Wind Swirls, and Football Dismisses Columbia, 52-18

Fueled by a program-high five passing touchdowns from quarterback Tom Stewart, Harvard's offense posted its largest output of the season. Several other seniors, including Wes Ogsbury with two picks, piled on and helped defeat a banged-up Columbia team.


Around the Ivies: Tussle at the Top, Columbia Visits

For Dartmouth and Princeton, this is easily the biggest game of the season. Each team is undefeated overall and in league play, and they stand head and shoulders above the competition. Whichever squad prevails sets itself up nicely to take the conference championship.

NOTEBOOK: Football's Comeback Not Enough to Topple Dartmouth

The football squad's losses by eight and seven points to Princeton and Dartmouth, respectively, represent the slimmest margins by which both of the league’s undefeated teams have won this season.

Look Back At It

Football Eyes Upset in Contest with Undefeated Dartmouth

This Saturday, Harvard football travels two and a half hours north to Hanover, N.H., to face Dartmouth. This time, the Big Green is undefeated in the Ancient Eight — and overall — and the Crimson is the team trying to claw its way back into contention.

I Scream You Scream

Football's Upset Bid Falls Short Against No. 18/23 Princeton, 29-21

In a tale of two quarters, Harvard and Princeton held each other scoreless in the third frame before engaging in a 19-14 shootout in the fourth. The Tigers came out on top to stay undefeated in 2018.

Lowering the Shoulder

Football Enters Second Half of Season Against Princeton

Here we are: the second half of the Ivy League football season. Though each team has just five of its 10 games remaining, all five of these games count toward the league standings. With non-conference play in the rearview mirror (don’t worry, I’m not going to pepper this ATI with Pearl Jam song titles), there is still plenty of time for the conference standings to shift significantly.

NOTEBOOK: Last-Second Field Goal Caps off Close Football Win

Harvard came out on top in a back and forth affair against Holy Cross on Friday evening. Highlights from the match included strong fourth quarter performance, special teams gaffes and a strong defense.
