? Big ? Game ? Alert ?
Dartmouth College football is gearing up to take down visiting Harvard at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday at Memorial Field in Hanover. There are a couple of factors that make this game one to watch:
1. It’s Dartmouth’s Homecoming Weekend (you might have heard there’s a big [safe?] bonfire tonight).
2. Dartmouth football currently is undefeated, having claimed victory in its last six games. The No. 20 Big Green also is 3-0 in Ivy League play. Archrival Harvard, meanwhile, is 3-3, 1-2.
Oh, also, we’re getting a nor’easter this weekend, so that should keep things interesting.
Dartmouth says it owes its success to a bit of sheer luck: The team largely has managed to avoid injuries to its starters, according to Dartmouth sports reporter Tris Wykes. Let’s hope it stays that way this weekend. Fingers crossed!
