Yale quarterback Patrick Witt produced the first points of the 2011 edition of the Harvard-Yale rivalry known as The Game. He produced the last ones, too, on an interception return. And in between, Harvard shellacked his Bulldogs, coming away with a 45-7 win that completes its undefeated run through the Ivy League.
The Crimson responded to Witt's first-quarter touchdown pass with 45 unanswered points, and scored 21 fourth quarter points. Quarterback Collier Winters threw for 355 yards and two touchdowns in the victory, and ran for another 62 yards and a touchdown.
Harvard kicker David Mothander had 15 points on the day, on a touchdown run, a field goal, and six extra points.
Witt, who passed up an interview for a Rhodes Scholarship to play in this game for the Elis, had a game to forget, throwing three interceptions and passing for just 226 yards. The Crimson outgained Yale by over 200 yards.
