Yale, Harvard to meet Saturday with Ivy League football title on the line

Morgan Roberts

(WTNH)–One of college football’s greatest rivalries will be played Saturday with a championship on the line. Yale and Harvard will meet in “The Game” to play for a share of the Ivy League title.

Yale did everything it had to this past weekend to set it up. The Bulldogs beat Princeton, and now if Yale wins, they’ll split the Ivy League title with their arch rivals. Harvard can win the title outright with a victory. They’ll be the favorites heading into the contest.

Yale quarterback Morgan Roberts isn’t too concerned about who the favorite is going to be.

“We’ve been underdogs all season,” he said. “Underdogs against Army, underdogs versus everybody. We’re not worried about it, we know what we’re capable of.”

“We’re excited to relish the opportunity, playing as brothers to accomplish something that hasn’t happened in a while.”
