Academic Integration and Competitive Excellence in Division I Athletics CRIMSON VS. THE BULLDOGS harvard Football News 2016 Semar Joe Viviano Smith ’17 ’18 UNDER CENTER Quarterback play has been a significant contributing factor to the difference in performance this year for Harvard and Yale. Senior Joe Viviano has taken the bulk of the snaps for the Crimson and enters The Game with a 61.6 completion percentage (157-of-255). Conversely, Yale’s signal callers have struggled to complete half of their pass attempts. Sophomore Tre Moore has been successful on just 48.8 percent of his attempts (80-of-164). Freshman Kurt Rawlings has the lowest mark at 48.2 (54-of- 112), while junior Rafe Chapple is the lone quarterback over the 50-percent plateau at 51.2 (21-of-41). SERIES HISTORY Among the most historic rivalries in collegiate athletics, The Game dates back 162 years and today’s meeting represents the 133rd game in the series. Yale holds a 65-59-8 lead alltime, but it has been all Harvard in recent memory. The Crimson is riding a nine-game win streak against the Bulldogs, having defeated its rival, 35-19, last season at the Yale Bowl. Harvard won the last meeting at Harvard Stadium in 2014, 31-24, with ESPN College GameDay on hand. THE PARTICULARS One of the most iconic rivalries in collegiate athletics renews today in one of the nation’s most iconic stadiums, as Harvard (7-2, 5-1 Ivy) hosts archrival Yale (2-7, 2-4 Ivy) in the 133rd meeting of The Game at Harvard Stadium. Today’s game will be broadcast live on CNBC. Harvard carries a nine-game win streak against the Bulldogs into the matchup and has a slight 26-25-3 edge in all games played at Harvard Stadium. In addition to the importance of The Game for the Crimson, today’s clash has Ivy League title implications for Harvard, as a victory would ensure at least a share of its fourth-consecutive Ivy League championship and the 18th in program history. No Harvard team has ever won four Ivy titles in conference history. Dartmouth (1969-73) and Penn (1982-86) captured five straight crowns. In winning its 18th Ivy championship, Harvard would match Dartmouth for the most ever in Ancient Eight history. THE MATCHUP Today’s contest pits rivals against each other with mirroring records, as Harvard is 7-2 and Yale is 2-7. The Crimson are 5-1 in the Ivy League, coming off its only conference loss at Penn last Friday, while the Bulldogs are 2-4 in conference and have lost three of their last four contests. Harvard’s offense is averaging over 94 yards more per game than its blue and white opponent. The Crimson comes into the final game of the season putting up 397.8 yards per game, supporting an average of 27.6 points per game. Yale’s offense is averaging just a tick over 300 yards at 303.3, while putting up just over 20 points on the scoreboard each time out. HARVARD COACH TIM MURPHY The all-time winningest coach in Harvard history with a 163-65 overall record, Murphy leads the Crimson into The Game with a 7-2 record this season. Murphy has won nine Ivy League titles in his 23-year tenure and with a victory today would capture the 10th in his storied career on the Harvard sideline. YALE COACH TONY RENO Reno, a former special teams coordinator and defensive backs coach for the Crimson from 2009-11, is wrapping up his fifth season at the helm of the Bulldogs. Entering the game, Reno is sporting a 23-26 record with his best season coming in 2014 when he led Yale to an 8-2 record. The Bulldogs are yet to win The Game against Harvard during his tenure, losing by an average margin of 15.75.
