The Harvard football team capped the 2021 season on Saturday, Nov. 20 with an epic victory over Yale at the Yale Bowl in New Haven. The Crimson pulled off a thrilling 34 – 31 win in the 137th playing of The Game, scoring the winning touchdown in the last minute of play.
With the cancellation of Ivy League competition in 2020-21, The Game hadn’t been played since Nov. 23, 2019. The rivalry is the third most-played series in college football history. While Yale leads Harvard all-time with a record of 68-61-8, Harvard has won 11 of the last 14 meetings. The Game will return to Harvard Stadium in 2022.
The Crimson finished the season 8 – 2, with a 5 – 2 record in the Ivy League.
