Although it's no longer true, there was a time when Eastern football---current Ivy teams, Army and Navy, Penn State, Syracuse, Pitt et al ruled the world. Nice to have Army-Navy and periodic Ivy classics remind us of how it once was.

This is real college football as it was intended. These players are real student athletes as the sport was envisioned to be.

True, I will catch a few Ivy League games each year for the same reason

Pete ; what made it lousy? There were a few turnovers, but basically no penalties and plenty of excitement and energy, plus great tackling

Well put Zoller -- I love the wide open passing game but dang, I thought this game was great and college football in its purest form.

I felt the same way when I watched the Yale-Army game. It's college football the way it was supposed to be. I hope Yale will play Army again someday in my lifetime.
