In its last non-conference matchup of the season, Harvard built an early lead and never looked back. The Crimson ran up 30 points while keeping Lafayette out of the end zone in the 30-3 win. At 5-0 (2-0 Ivy League), the Crimson will travel to Princeton, N.J., this weekend for a tilt with the also undefeated Tigers that may prove to be a pivotal turning point in the Ivy season, and maybe even a de facto championship game.
