Harvard Football Travels to Manhattan, Faces Columbia Saturday

This building is nowhere near Columbia's football field. If you're lucky, however, you just might be able to see Wein Stadium on the top (if it's a really clear day).

What: Harvard Crimson (6-1, 4-0 Ivy) at Columbia Lions (0-7, 0-4 Ivy)
Where: Wein Stadium, New York, New York
When: Saturday, November 5th at 12:30 PM (Pregame at 12:00 PM)
How: On 95.3 FM in the Greater Boston area, and streaming live worldwide at

This Saturday, the Ivy League-leading Harvard Crimson voyage south to the Big Apple to face off against the last-place Columbia Lions. Although the Lions are thus far winless on the season, they have a history of narrow losses: three of their four Ivy League contests were decided by a touchdown or less. Senior Quarterback Sean Brackett is a genuine dual threat, capable of passing the ball (he is second all-time in career TDs on the Columbia roster) and generating yardage on the ground (he leads the Lions in yards gained on the ground with 327). The Crimson, by comparison, are coming off a week in which they also proved themselves a genuine dual threat, rushing for 395 yards in the squad's first truly standout ground game of the season.

Scott Reed and Charlie Hobbs will have the call live from Wein Stadium in northern Manhattan at 12:30; James Yoon and Jimmy Looney will anchor the pregame show, beginning at noon.
