On The Fly: Yale Soars, While UConn Splats

Yale 21, Harvard 14. That was no misprint. The Bulldogs stunned Harvard to deny it a fourth straight Ivy League title. Their nine-game losing streak in this rivalry ended as freshman quarterback Kurt Rawlings passed for two touchdowns and ran for 74 yards. The game featured a fake Yale field goal, a successful Yale onside kick and some Yale students dancing naked in celebration in Harvard Stadium. It was here back in 1968 that, as the Harvard Crimson headline declared, "Harvard Beats Yale 29-29." The tie devastated the Bulldogs that day. The loss on Saturday devastated the Crimson.

Just down the road from Harvard, there was a resounding splat. UConn once again...
