Crimson quarterback Collier Winters ’11 threw for 211 yards, ran for 51 yards, and threw two touchdowns on Nov. 21 as the Harvard football team came back from a 10-0, fourth-quarter to defeat the Yale Bulldogs,14-10.
The oldest rivalry in college football dates to 1875, when Harvard and Yale played a bruising game that resembled rugby more than modern football. Back then, fans journeyed by train, horseback, and foot from around New England to view the rough-and-tumble spectacle.
