The Harvard Crimson reports, "The stage was bigger. The stakes were higher. But for the Harvard football team, it was just another day at the office on Saturday against Yale.
The Crimson relied on the same formula that propelled it to eight wins in nine games this season. On offense, familiar faces continued to rack up yardage. On defense, a cohesive, senior-laden unit made stops and held firm when pressured.
The result rang out loud and clear on the scoreboard at the end of the afternoon: Harvard 38, Yale 19. The victory marked the Crimson’s ninth consecutive positive outcome in The Game and, more importantly, the program’s third straight Ivy League championship.
The Crimson defense held Yale scoreless for 42 minutes after its opening touchdown drive. “The third straight time making history, it’s something that the senior class will be able to talk about for the rest of our lives,” senior tight end Ben Braunecker said. “I’m just so proud of the way we did it.”
Senior quarterback Scott Hosch led the charge on the offensive end with four touchdown passes and 320 yards, breaking the Harvard all-time single-season passing record in the process. Freshman wide receiver Justice Shelton-Mosley reeled in two of those scores and rushed for another, while Braunecker contributed his own pair of receiving touchdowns."
