Crimson Face Dartmouth Under Lights Saturday at 6 PM

Saturday's forecast calls for some late-autumn snow as Harvard takes on Dartmouth under the lights.

What: Harvard Crimson (5-1, 3-0 Ivy) vs. Dartmouth Big Green (2-4, 1-2 Ivy)
Where: Harvard Stadium, Allston, Massachusetts
When: Saturday, October 29th at 6:00 PM (Pregame at 5:30 PM)
How: On 95.3 FM WHRB in the Greater Boston area, or streaming live around the world at

With the reigning Ivy League Offensive Player of the Week starting under center for the third straight time, the Harvard Crimson are set to take on the Dartmouth Big Green in a battle under the lights of Harvard Stadium. Collier Winters, who started against Princeton for the second time this season after sustaining a hamstring injury at Holy Cross, looks to continue his record-setting form from last week, when he completed 34 of 42 passes for 5 TDs and 403 yards. If, however, the expected inclement weather arrives, the focus may shift from Winters to Harvard's ground game--a unit that has been middle-of-the-pack in the Ivy League so far this season. Meanwhile, Dartmouth--WHRB's perennially disappointing Ivy League dark horse candidate--is coming off of a lopsided victory over the Columbia Lions. Nick Schwieger, who is the reigning co-Ivy League Player of the year and leads the Ivy League in rushing yards, posted 157 yards and 3 TDs en route to a 37-0 shutout victory. Stopping the run game was difficult for Harvard last week--the Crimson gave up 267 to the Tigers--and doing so will be essential if the Crimson expect to remain undefeated in Ivy League play.
