Tie would be fitting

 

Harvard would have a chance at winning the Ivy League title outright today if college football games still ended in ties, like they did 45 years ago when the Crimson famously “beat” Yale 29-29. Instead, with Harvard’s 3OT loss to Princeton, the best the Crimson can do now is defeat their archrival in New Haven, Conn., (NBC Sports, 9 a.m.) and hope the Tigers lose their finale. That would lead to a tie for first and a fitting result on the 45th anniversary of this rivalry’s most famous entry. In 1968, Harvard scored 16 points in the final 42 seconds that resulted in its student newspaper trumpeting the headline “Harvard Beats Yale 29-29.” – AP
