Yale punter deftly avoids block against Harvard

Saturday November 22nd, 2014

Yale punter Bryan Holmes deftly avoided a block punt during Saturday's game against Harvard.

Late in the first half, Holmes received a low snap and began to lineup a punt before pulling the ball out as a Harvard player dove in to block it.

Holmes then stepped forward and punted the ball 46 yards to Harvard's 15-yard line.

The Bulldogs led the Crimson 7-3 at the half, but eventually fell 31-24.

Harvard has now won eight consecutive games in the rivalry between the two schools.
