Historic Week VII of the Ivy Series

Historic Week VII of the Ivy Series

Harvard @ Yale, Dartmouth @ Brown, Columbia @ Cornell and Princeton to play Penn @ Franklin Field

 Yale vs Harvard 1875

In 1875, Harvard challenged Yale to a game under "Concessionary Rules" of part rugby and part soccer. The game was played in November at New Haven, Connecticut with 15 players on a side instead of 11 as Yale would have preferred and Harvard won by 4 goals and 4 tries to nil. The yearly football renewal of that first contest is simply called "The Game."

Yale 60, Cornell 3

In Sunday’s Match against winless Cornell, Yale went out to a seven-try, 45-3 first half lead and then cruised home to a 60-3 win. Yale’s record is now 4-2.

Brown 39, Princeton 10

Paced by the three tries of Harrison Chaney, Brown improved its record to 5-1 with a 39-10 home win over 2-4 Princeton.

Providence, RI Brown went into halftime with a 22-5 lead, courtesy of tries by Hao Li, Dow Travers, and Chaney (2). Sam Rabb added a conversion. Princeton got on the board courtesy of a try by tighthead prop Zac Flowerman. Brown increased its tally to 39 with tries by Sam Rabb (2) and Chaney Harrison, plus a Rabb conversion. Zac Flowerman scored again for Princeton, 39-10.

Harvard 78, Columbia 0

Led by four tries apiece from Dan Deighton and Jonathan Kola, plus three from Dave Renteln, Harvard ravaged an injury riddled Columbia side 78-0.
