FOOTBALL | Red to Take On Ivy Champs

Print More


After an 0-3 start and a 51-13 shellacking by Yale last weekend, the football team will not get a reprieve when it heads to Cambridge this weekend to face off against the defending Ivy League champs.

Harvard has run through the competition in two of its first three wins, scoring a combined 75 points against Holy Cross and Georgetown. The Crimson, who boasts the second best offense and the top-ranked defense in the Ivy League, will propose a challenge on both fronts to a Cornell team that has struggled with defending the pass and finding the end zone through the first three games.

“Every week is a battle and this game will be nothing less than that,” said fifth-year senior co-captain and defensive lineman Justin Harris. “Harvard is a great team and we match up well with them and we are excited about the chance to play our best game yet and take down the defending champs.”
