Well, maybe they didn’t get the Yale Bowl perfectly aligned, but then again, I think it cost only $300,000. Hard dollars back in 1913-14!

Dak Prescott should have known the protocol for having the umpire allow the play to start.

“The designers positioned the Bowl so that the minor axis points to the sun at 3 p.m. on November 15. Thus no football player would ever have to look into the sun when Yale plays its big games against Princeton and Harvard.”—Charles Ferry, Class of 1871S (1852–1924), one of the Bowl’s designers, in a 1916 report to the American Society of Civil Engineers
