by

Harvard footballAndrew Fischer had himself a game Saturday.

The Harvard wide receiver had two touchdowns receptions — including the eventual game-winning score with 55 seconds to play — to help propel the Crimson to a 31-24 win over Yale in the 2014 installment of one of college football’s oldest rivalries. With the win, Harvard completes a perfect 10-0 season and clinches the Ivy League title.

Harvard jumped out to a big second-half lead after scoring 21 third-quarter points. However, the Bulldogs clawed back and tied the game with a field goal late in the fourth quarter. Harvard then marched down the field, leading to a 35-yard touchdown strike between Fischer and Harvard quarterback Conner Hempel.

Fischer ended the day with eight catches, 149 receiving yards and the two touchdowns. Fischer also rushed for 79 cards on two carries, including a 58-yard scamper.

Yale finishes its season with an 8-2 record and a 5-2 mark in Ivy League play.
