CAMBRIDGE, Mass.—The Harvard football team has announced its 2020 season schedule, which features five games at Harvard Stadium, including the 137th playing of The Game against Yale on Nov. 21, 2020.

Tim Murphy, The Thomas Stephenson Family Head Coach for Harvard Football, will be entering his 27th season at the helm. Murphy, who has led Harvard to nine Ivy League titles in his tenure, owns a 178-81 overall record with the Crimson and is one win shy of tying Yale's Carmen Cozza (179) for most overall victories in conference history. Murphy (124) is also 11 victories away from tying Cozza (135) for most wins in Ivy League games.

The Crimson opens up its 147th season at home when it hosts Georgetown on Saturday, Sept. 19. Harvard then takes on its first Ivy League opponent on the road when it makes the short trip to Brown on Sept. 26. 

After taking on the Bears, the Crimson returns home to face Holy Cross Oct. 3 before back-to-back road contests at Cornell Oct. 10 and Lafayette (Oct. 17). Harvard will close out the month of October at Harvard Stadium against Princeton Oct. 24 and at Dartmouth on Halloween. 

In the last stretch of the schedule, the Crimson plays host to Columbia Nov. 7 before concluding the road portion of its slate at Penn Nov. 14.   

Harvard will then face Yale at Harvard Stadium Nov. 21.

All game dates are subject to change. Kick-off times, television and ticket information will be announced at a later date. Each of Harvard's home non-conference games, and all Ivy League games not being televised, will be broadcast live on ESPN+.
