Har­vard, Yale to meet at Fen­way next sea­son

The Oneida Daily Dispatch (Oneida, NY) - - Sports -

Sim­ply known as The Game, the sto­ried matchup be­tween Yale and Har­vard will add a new chap­ter next year when the his­toric pro­grams bat­tle at Bos­ton’s most fa­mous park.

BOS­TON » One of col­lege foot­ball’s old­est ri­val­ries will be vis­it­ing ma­jor league base­ball’s old­est ball­park.

The Game be­tween Har­vard and Yale will be played at Fen­way Park next year. It’s the first new site for the long­time foot­ball ri­vals since 1912.

Fen­way Park hosted col­lege foot­ball since it opened in 1912 and was the home of the Bos­ton Pa­tri­ots in the 1960s. This month, it was the site for sev­eral col­lege games, in­clud­ing a Bos­ton Col­lege vic­tory over UConn.

The 135th edi­tion of The Game is also the 50th an­niver­sary of the his­toric 1968 tie, when Har­vard scored 16 points in the fi­nal 42 sec­onds to es­cape de­feat.

The school pa­per com­mem­o­rated the come­back with the head­line: “Har­vard Beats Yale 29-29.”
