Despite pleas from Harvard Football Coach Joe Restic that Penn's controversial, last-second victory over the Crimson squad three weeks ago should be nullified, the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) refused to change the 23-21 result this week.
Restic had protested because of a roughing-the-kicker penalty called on the last play, which gave Quaker kicker Dave Shulman a second shot at a 27-yd. field goal. When Shulman split the uprights, Penn had assured itself of a tie for the Ivy title.
ECAC officials called the penalty a "judgment call" and said Referee Robert Lynch was in the best position to make a decision, but did add that he made three "errors in technique" while judging the play.
Both Harvard and Penn finished with 7-3 records and tied for the Ivy title.

Following a two-month shutdown, the undamaged main gym of the leakplagued Quadrangle Recreational Athletic Center (Q-RAC) opened Wednesday to the joy of Quad residents who have been forced to hike to the Indoor Athletic Building for a workout or game.
Repairs to fix leaks in other parts of the three-year-old building will keep the Q-Rac's squash and racquetball courts closed through next semester, but the Universal Gym--previously located in the damaged exercise room--has been moved into the main gym so students can use it while the repairs continue.
