Thornton Clark, AB '59, hailing from Alabama, hilariously recounts the Harvard Yale game of 1968 in chapter 12 of his book, Heads or Tales (see Amazon). The chapter starts calmly enough, but it's a nail biter shortly after this opening paragraph:
When you live in Alabama and see the incredible amount of attention paid to collegiate football, especially when Alabama or Auburn play for the National Championship, you wonder about the Harvard-Yale game’s being called “The Game.” There is a great old tradition and, despite the deterioration of interest in Ivy League football, even among the students, this event at the end of each season still evokes great interest. Even the stadium itself has a place in history, as you can read in the chapters on its construction and its role as a major force in the evolving rules governing football.
