Perhaps the Big Red-Crimson rivalry is now two-way.
Crimson staff writer Christina McClintock:
Though Harvard-Yale weekend is historic in its own right, the Bulldogs can no longer be considered the Crimson’s most hated foe.Expect a Big Red invasion of Allston, Mass., on Friday, with Cornell playing Harvard in both hockey and men's basketball.
That enemy would prove to be Cornell, Harvard’s biggest rival in men’s basketball and men’s ice hockey. The newfound rivalry between the Big Red and the Crimson is more current, more competitive, and much more focused on the actual game at hand. And Friday’s upcoming games in both sports have the Harvard student body in a kind of pre-game fervor that November’s football game can’t match. This time, the attention focuses on the contests themselves rather than on which house will sport the best tailgate.
