    Good for them.

    Now, can someone get a NCAA dispensation for Rutgers to schedule Princeton in 2019?

    I think that Harvard and Yale fans are in for a treat.

    Not clear to me is why the "construction" of Harvard Stadium can't be delayed for a week so that The Game can be played at Harvard as usual.

    Unfortunately I think the ship has sailed on that. It was a golden opportunity to showcase Ivy League Football to the nation. It’s a shame no one at Princeton had the foresight to seize the opportunity.

    I don’t believe it’s construction either. Harvard is playing every other game at home next season so they could delay construction just one week. I think it’s to sell more tickets and boost tv ratings. Fenway seats 38,000 compared to 31,000 at Harvard Stadium. The Ivy a League is not above trying to make money on sports.

    They may need to if ticket sales are strong enough.
