Any pertinent observers of Harvard’s weekly halftime show may have noticed one glaring difference: the size of the band. The reason: Old Timers’ Day! This past weekend marked the 100th anniversary of the Harvard University Band.
With football season in full swing, here are some people in the bleachers you’ll definitely run into.
Harvard's defense held the dynamic Cornell rushing attack to only 36 total yards. Likewise, the Crimson offense was perfect from the red zone, scoring on all three entires into the territory. Prior to the contest, the Big Red was first in the nation in red zone defense.
At a more micro level, the duel looks similar to past years as well. By virtue of being division rivals, the two squads know each other well.
In the first ever meeting between Harvard and Howard, the Crimson running backs were nearly unstoppable, logging 288 yards and seven touchdowns. Harvard's defense tallied an impressive seven sacks and three punt blocks in the afternoon contest.
