Nov. 25, 1968

Most folks were still bewildered after seeing Harvard score 16 points in the final 42 seconds to catch Yale in a 29-29 tie.

The game has commonly been referred to as a 29-29 Harvard win and the legend has done nothing but grow over a half-century.

One day later at Fenway Park, the Boston Patriots created no memorable moments – or even delusions of adequacy – in a 34-10 loss to the Miami Dolphins . Many of the 18.305 on hand may have wished they’d stayed home to watch the replay of Harvard-Yale on Ch, 5.

In their next-to-last game at Fenway before Tom Yawkey (a Yale man) told them to get lost, the Pats actually broke out to a 10-0 lead. The fun was done by the end of quarter number one.

Second-year quarterback Bob Griese torched the Patriots for 269 yards and three touchdowns, completing 19 of 33 passes.

Boston QB Tom Sherman completed 12 of 27 passes for 228 yards, one TD and two interceptions.

Most likely Sherman was not invited to Griese’s Hall of Fame induction. Or maybe he was and was given directions to Canton, Mass.

The Dolphins finished the season at 5-8-1, the Patriots 4-10.
