By Ginny Miller, Contributing Writer

Last Saturday, Harvard defeated Yale, 38-19, in the 132nd matchup between the two Ivy archrivals. Harvard rebounded from a loss to Penn the previous week to secure for the Crimson a share of the Ancient Eight title for the third season in a row, the first three-peat in Harvard football history. With Thanksgiving on Thursday and the despair of finals week around the corner, here are some #HY2015 stats so Crimson fans can continue to revel in their victory a little bit longer.

4: Number of consecutive weeks Shelton-Mosley has been named Ancient Eight Rookie of the Week.

320: Number of passing yards for senior quarterback Scott Hosch.

2,827: Total passing yards for Hosch this season, earning him the all-time single-season record.

4: Number of touchdown passes for Hosch, tying him for most in The Game’s history.

10:56: Minutes the Crimson had the ball more than Yale.

11: Number of tackles for senior linebacker Jacob Lindsey, a team-high.
