Harvard Football to Receive Lambert Meadowlands Award

Harvard Football to Receive Lambert Meadowlands Award

Harvard finished 9-1 and captured its third-consecutive Ivy League crown in 2015 (Gil Talbot).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – After winning its third-straight Ivy League title in 2015, the Harvard football team has been named one of three schools to receive the 2015 FCS Lambert Meadowlands Award, presented annually to the top football team in the Eastern region of the Football Championship Subdivision.

The Crimson will share the award with fellow Ivy League institutions Dartmouth and Penn, who also captured a portion of the Ancient Eight title in 2015. This marks the first Lambert Meadowlands Award for the Ivy League since Penn shared the award with Holy Cross in 1986.

Harvard finished the 2015 season with a 9-1 overall record and 6-1 mark in the Ivy League, as the Crimson won a share of its third-straight conference title. Harvard defeated Yale for a program-record ninth-consecutive time, and the senior class finished with a record of 36-4, tying last year's class with the most victories for an Ancient Eight school in the Ivy era (since 1956).

The Crimson appeared at No. 19 in the final STATS FCS media poll and No. 20 in the FCS Coaches' poll.

Harvard will be honored on Feb. 25, at the Eastern College Football Awards Banquet, hosted by the ECAC at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. A full list of major award winners can be found here
