Harvard running back flips bird on touchdown run, play gets called back

Harvard running back flips bird on touchdown run, play gets called back

Harvard appeared to come up with a crucial stop, though, when senior Wesley Ogsbury made a nice open-field tackle at the 8 to halt the Bulldogs on third and goal. The officials threw a flag for targeting, the call was confirmed on replay and Ogsbury was ejected. The result of the play was a first down for Yale.

"It's amusing, I didn't know that Fenway Park could be so intimate for a football game", Harvard head coach Tim Murphy said after the game.

"Bang-bang play. I thought it was just a solid football play. Honest to goodness. It was such a bang-bang play".

Harvard regained supremacy in the ancient Harvard-Yale rivalry by virtue of a 45-27 win before an enthusiastic Fenway Park crowd of 34,675 yesterday afternoon.

"I don't when I've ever been more proud of my football team", Murphy said. "We had our share of challenges this year".

Khmer Rouge surviving leaders guilty of genocide, tribunal finds
Many believe the decision will be the last for the tribunal, which has been marred by allegations of political interference. They are the first Khmer Rouge officials to be found guilty of genocide and have been sentenced to life in prison.

Now that's something you don't see every day.

The penalty was not the last adversity the Crimson were to face. Harvard running back Devin Darrington got a got the capital-P version on Saturday in The Game for, shall we say, giving the Yale defense a one-finger salute.

But because he couldn't wait, and raised his middle finger during the field of play, the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty brought the ball back from the spot of the foul. The Crimson ended up settling for Jake McIntyre's 36-yard field goal and a 31-27 lead with 11:13 remaining.
