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