Yale Beats Harvard, 19-14, in 138th Rendition of The Game | Sports

Read Time:1 Minute, 39 Second

The Harvard football team’s Ivy League title hopes were squashed by its arch rival Saturday as the Crimson fell to Yale, 19-14, in the 138th rendition of The Game.

Senior quarterback Charlie Dean and the Crimson (6-4, 4-3) had a chance to make a miraculous comeback drive as time expired, but fell short as Dean threw his fourth interception of the game.

Bulldogs fans stormed the field at Harvard Stadium to celebrate Yale’s first win over the Crimson since 2019. With the win, Yale improved to 69-61-8 all time against the Crimson, which has not won against Yale in a game at Harvard Stadium since 2014.

The Crimson offense was horrendous in the loss, gaining a total of just 288 yards. In addition to Dean’s four picks, he completed just 15 of his 33 passes. Even Harvard’s star, senior running back Aidan Borguet, was held to 62 yards on 18 carries and was held out of the end zone for just the third time this season. Yale looked to be better on both offense and defense in an ugly, back-and-forth affair.

With the win, Yale guaranteed itself a share of the Ivy League title, as it won its sixth conference game of the season, its only loss coming against Penn in October. Yale Quarterback Nolan Grooms was inconsistent through the air, completing 15 of his 28 passes for 144 yards and a touchdown, but he was stellar on the ground. Overall, the Bulldogs slashed their way through the Crimson defense for 51 carries, 219 yards and a score. The trio of Grooms and running backs Tre Peterson and Joshua Pitsenberger proved too problematic to solve.
