Rivalry Week with Dartmouth Kicks off Tonight

Do something great with all you’ve got. Be ambitious. Aspire to change the world. If you’re an engineer – take on climate change and move us toward a more sustainable future. If you’re a musician – play or write something that truly moves people. And if you play football – beat Harvard! Please! This year!- Dartmouth College President, and former Harvard administrator, Jim Yong Kim. (emphasis mine)

The Harvard Crimson are going to be seeing green all weekend as they face the Dartmouth Big Green in five sports this weekend.

The first game of the Harvard-Dartmouth rivalry is tonight, as the Crimson men's hockey team travels to Hanover to begin Ancient Eight and ECAC play. The drop of the puck is scheduled for 7 PM, and WHRB will begin its coverage with a pregame from Thompson Arena at 6:45 PM, as Tom Brennan and Brendan Roche will have the call.

Then on Saturday, four sports are in action against the Big Green on Halloween. At 11 AM, the women's soccer team takes on Dartmouth at Ohiri Field, and the No. 14 men's soccer team takes on No. 21 Dartmouth. Both the men's and women's teams are looking to recover from losses to Princeton at Ohiri Field and to remain near the top of the Ivy League standings.

At 1 PM over on Jordan Field, the field hockey team also face the Big Green. The Crimson are coming off two big losses to ranked opponents (9-0 to No. 4 Princeton, 9-1 to No. 9 Boston College) and will be looking to turn it around against Dartmouth.

Last, but certainly not least, the football team is slated to kickoff against Dartmouth at 12 PM. WHRB will have coverage of that game, beginning with pregame coverage at 11:30 AM with Scott Reed and James Yoon, before the 12 PM broadcast with Alasdair Wilkins, Tom Brennan and Kara Hollis.

Both schools will be looking to win this weekend rivalry series- and Dartmouth's new president knows he will be razzed by his former colleagues at Harvard if his school doesn't.
