Harvard, Yale anticipating Fenway showdown

(STATS) – Members of Harvard and Yale football held a news conference at Fenway Park on Tuesday to preview their Ivy League rivalry being renewed at the home of the Boston Red Sox later this year.

The Green Monster will overlook the 135th rendition of “The Game” for the first time on Nov. 17. Yale holds a 67-59-8 series lead.

This year’s game commemorates the 50th anniversary of the two programs’ famous 29-29 tie in 1968. Vic Gatto, Harvard’s 1968 captain, participated in the news conference.

Among those also on hand were the 2018 team captains, Harvard’s Zach Miller and Yale’s Kyle Mullen.

Yale is the defending Ivy League champion. Under coach Tony Reno, the Bulldogs went 9-1 while claiming their first title since 2006.

Harvard finished 5-5, snapping a 16-year run of at least seven wins. Coach Tim Murphy, entering his 25th season, has led the Crimson to nine Ivy titles.
