"We are off to a solid start at 2-0, but we have a great deal of room for improvement ...," said a cautious head football coach Tim Murphy after the win over Brown University on Sept. 28. Harvard goes up against Holy Cross on Oct. 5. It won't have another home game until Oct. 19.
The Harvard football team fell to Lafayette this past Saturday (Oct. 17) by a score of 35-18. It was the Crimson’s first loss to the Leopards since 1996.
