With the college football regular season winding down, one of the sport’s oldest and most prestigious rivalries kicks off Saturday with the Harvard Crimson and the Yale Bulldogs meeting for the 136th rendition of “The Game.” Yale holds a 67-60-8 edge over Harvard in the third most-played rivalry in Division I football. While Harvard boasts one of the stingier defenses in the FCS, SI’s Amy Campbell says the Crimson will have their hands full against Yale’s potent offense. With an Ivy League best scoring offense at 37.4 points per game, the Bulldogs are led by senior quarterback Kurt Rawlings. Yale has rattled off five straight wins and can take a share of the Ivy League title by defeating its arch rival.
