Big Green to take on Harvard Saturday in battle of Ivy titans

Days earlier, the five-year-old Florida Marlins defeated the Cleveland Indians 3-2 in an 11-inning classic to win the World Series in seven games. That Saturday in Hanover was also the last meeting between Harvard and Dartmouth as undefeated football teams, and was the last time the Big Green opened a season 3-0 in the Ivy League.
