Unitarian Controversy redux
Today marks the 122nd meeting of the oldest annual rivalry in college football, known simply as "The Game", between Unitarian Harvard and Congregationalist Yale. Yale leads Harvard 63-49-9 in the series, but Harvard has won the last four.

Ten Thousand Men of Harvard
A. Putnam, H '18
Illegitimum non carborundum;
Domine salvum fac.
Illegitimum non Carborundum;
Domine salvum fac.
Veritas non sequitur?
Illegitimum non carborundum -- ipso facto!
Ten thousand men of Harvard want vict'ry today,
For they know that o'er old Eli
Fair Harvard holds sway.
So then we'll conquer old Eli's men,
And when the game ends, we'll sing again:
Ten thousand men of Harvard gained vict'ry today!
Down the Field
C.W. O'Conner, Y '04 Law, and Stanleigh P. Friedman, Y '05
March, march on down the field, fighting for Eli,
Break through the crimson line, their strength to defy;
We'll give a long cheer for Eli's men,
We're here to win again.
Harvard's team may fight to the end, but Yale will win.
R. G. Williams, H '11, and S. B. Steel, H '11
With Crimson in triumph flashing
Mid the strains of victory,
Poor Eli’s hopes we are dashing
Into blue obscurity.
Resistless our team sweeps goalward
With the fury of the blast;
We’ll fight for the name of Harvard
‘Til the last white line is passed.
Bingo, That's the Lingo
Cole Porter, Y '13
Bingo, Bingo, Bingo,
That's the lingo,
Eli is bound to win.
There's to be a victory,
So watch the team begin!
B-B-B-Bingo, Bingo, Harvard's team cannot prevail,
Fight! Fight! Fight with all your might for Bingo, Bingo,
