CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard will celebrate the 100th anniversary of its Rose Bowl Game victory leading up to and throughout the 2019 campaign. Feature content will appear on GoCrimson.com and Harvard Athletics' social media channels.
The Crimson traveled west to Pasadena, California, to face Oregon in the 1920 Rose Bowl Game and emerged with the 7-6 victory to cap an unbeaten season with a 9-0-1 record. The MVP was Eddie Casey, who was inducted to the College Football Hall of Fame in 1968.
The 1919 campaign, which ended in Harvard capturing its seventh national title, saw Harvard shut out seven foes, including its first six, and outscored its opposition, 229-19, under the direction of head coach Robert T. Fisher.
Harvard will officially highlight the Rose Bowl Game win on Saturday, Nov. 2, when the Crimson play host to Dartmouth in a 1 p.m. contest. Fall Fest 2019 will also take place that day, which will feature pregame live musical entertainment, food trucks and yard games in the quad. Single-game tickets, including tickets for the Dartmouth game, will go on sale July 9.
The Crimson is coming off a 2018 campaign that saw it finish with three consecutive victories, including a 45-27 victory over Yale in the 135th playing of The Game, en route to a 6-4 overall record.
