NEW HAVEN, Conn. – In the 130th playing of The Game on Saturday, the Harvard football team —with the help of sophomore Paul Stanton Jr.‘s four touchdowns — out-muscled Yale, 34-7, to claim its seventh consecutive win against its archrival at the Yale Bowl. This extends the Crimson’s longest winning streak over the Bulldogs and is Harvard’s 250th Ivy League win overall, making it the first team to reach the landmark victory total.

Following the conclusion of the Harvard-Yale showdown, Dartmouth shocked league-leading Princeton, 28-24, giving Harvard a share of the 2013 Ivy League title. It is Harvard’s 15th Ancient Eight crown and seventh under head coach Tim Murphy.
