In a season that has seen Dartmouth only rarely not in complete control of a match, the nationally‐ranked Big Green were put to the test by a physical and well‐coached Brown side to finish out the Ivy League play. Trailing Dartmouth by 12-5 in the first half, Brown was unable to upset the undefeated Dartmouth.
Brown matched the Dartmouth Seconds for the first half of the match. Dartmouth scored just before the half to take a 12-10 lead into intermission. The Big Green swept away Brown in the second half. The final was 36-10 Dartmouth.

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."Posted: 10/16/2009
