Overview

Based on the critically acclaimed documentary, Harvard Beats Yale 29-29 tells the story of the most famous college football game in history

Harvard Stadium, November 23, 1968: For the first time since 1909, the football teams of Harvard and Yale are undefeated as they meet for their final game. Yale, led by captain and quarterback Brian Dowling (later satirized as B.D. in classmate Garry Trudeau's Doonesbury comic strip) is heavily favored. The underdog team from Harvard includes lineman Tommy Lee Jones? Al Gore's roommate and future Hollywood star. What follows is widely regarded as among the best games of all time.

First came Rafferty's documentary of the game, which Newsday called 'A nail-biting sports story,' and Time Out New York deemed 'close to perfect.' Now, in this compelling and unique new book, Rafferty intercuts photos of the game and Trudeau's original drawings with the hilarious and suspenseful recollections of the fifty players to create a stunning account of one of the most famous games of all time.
