The Harvard football team beat Yale, 45-27, at Fenway Park on Saturday, running away with the 135th meeting between the schools.

“It was a little more than we ever could have expected to play this game that means so much to us at Fenway,” Harvard offensive lineman Ben Shoults said.

This was the highest-scoring game ever between the two teams. Yale had beaten Harvard in back-to-back years, but the Crimson have now won 15 of the last 18 matchups.

Here are some photos from the day:
