Harvard and Yale will renew their rivalry Saturday.
The Game is back.
The Harvard football team will host Yale this Saturday in the annual game between Ivy League schools. The Game, which it is routinely called, has been played since 1875 when football scoring was separated by field goals and touchdowns for two scores.
Harvard enters the game with a 7-2 overall record. The Crimson started their season with five straight wins but have lost two of their last four games. Harvard is coming off a 30-21 loss to Penn on Saturday.
The Bulldogs are 2-7 overall and 1-5 in the Ivy League. Yale started the season with a win against Georgetown, but the Bulldogs have lost seven of their last eight games. They are coming off a 29-7 loss to Princeton on Saturday.
Yale leads the all-time series, 65-55-8. But Harvard has had more recent success: The Crimson have won 10 of the last 11 meetings.
Here's the college football schedule for local teams this weekend. All times ET:
