No train service from Washington to philly or Princeton in the 1900s -not quite. Knute Rockne and ND played USC via train in the 1920s. Villanova, Georgetown and Boston College did not have adequate on campus football stadiums Georgetown still doesn’t Holy Cross Fitton Field 25000 capacity was built in 1920s which was considered huge especially for a school of 1400 students back then

Despite losing its outstanding defensive player Holy Ctoss gave Villanova a ll it could handle. A few breaks, just a few, and HC w outdoor be playing next week maybe
HC has an excellent QB. The team is absolutely well coached.

By sheer distance, Worcester is closer to Harvard, Yale, Brown, and Dartmouth than the closest Ivy is to Washington.

On December 5 1931, teams from Brown Dartmouth Holy cross and Yale played a charity tournament at Yale bowl. Labeled the Gloomy Bowl the teams raised money for charity as the US was in the depth of Great Depression. A chronicle of the event written by former Dartmouth SID, indicates the team event was great success with 28000 attending the Yale Bowl at $2 a ticket, Great chronicle on Ivy/Holy Cross history. Job well done Brown Bears,Dartmouth , Holy Cross Crusaders and Yale Bulldogs of 1931!
