Harvard, Yale anticipating Fenway showdown
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.
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.
