Even when the final gun sounded and Harvard had won it, 16-7, the Yalies never stopped their cries of encouragement. This was it, The 100th Game, played before 70,097 fans Saturday at the Yale Bowl. And a tougher, more talented Harvard team won it. It wasn't a particularly interesting game, nor was it filled with spectacular plays or game-stopping heroics. It was, simply, a football game. With the victory, Harvard (6-2-2) snatched a share of the Ivy League title with Pennsylvania, a 38-14 winner over Dartmouth in Philadelphia Saturday. Harvard and Penn finished the season with 5-1-1 league records. Yale, meanwhile, closed out its worst season in history with a 1-9 overall record, 1-6 in the Ivy League. For Harvard, there were two men who made it all possible senior quarterback s Penn Wins Share of Ivy Title, Page D1 1 . Summary, Page D1 6. Greg Gizzi and senior linebacker Andy Nolan. Gizzi calls his a "Cinderella story." For most of his career Gizzi, a 5-foot-10, 185-pounder, stood on the sideline. Just be fore the Dartmouth game Gizzi asked Coach Joe Restic if he could be moved to flanker. Restic asked him to stay as a backup quarterback. Midway through the Dartmouth game Restic put Gizzi into the lineup. He hasn't left since. "I was waiting for my shot," said Gizzi, an economics major from Irvington, N.Y. "I couldn't wait to step on the field. There was no way I was going to muff that chance. You can't write a better script." For Harvard's Cinderfella, the shoe fit perfectly.

They spell it in capital letters to emphasize there is no other. How did you enjoy The Ohio State-Michigan Game? No losers up there in the pros. Winner goes to the Sugar Bowl. Loser goes to the Fiesta Bowl. Here, the winners and losers celebrate over a bowl at Mory's or someplace, and sing songs. Frankly, I like it better this way. I think the players do, too. They'll be running the country in a few years, helping cure cancer and making sure World War III never will be anything more than a network television program. I know you won't believe this but they all graduate, too. Don't tell me about the quality of The Game up there in Ann Arbor in front of 100,000 or so. And how slick they played. Those schools were babes in the woods when Harvard and Yale thought up the game. Edna, don't tell me about the tailgating. It, too, started here. There was this chauffeur-driven Bentley with a couple wining and dining with silver service on a warm, lovely November afternoon. The alumni generally resemble a look-alike convention of Harold Lloyds and Rudy Vallees. They speak a different language, too. "I'm Wardly, '35," says one. r "Hi, I'm Jeeves, '41." T And they slapped each other on the back and giggle arid pour an exotic cocktail. I tried it, Edna. "Hi, Ohio State, '56," I greeted. . j An owl-eyed chap, perspiring in his rented raccoon, wrapped his ankle-length scarf twice around his neck and said, "Ree-ally?" It was some game, though.

State Riddles Houston By TOMMY HINE Courant Staff Writer SPRINGFIELD Houston Coach Guy Lewis couldn't understand it. Sure, it was a rematch of last year's NCAA finalists. The teams were the same, as were the coaches and the uniforms. But, some of the bodies weren't, and North Carolina State, not Houston, was the team with the new faces. That's why Houston is ranked third in the country and N.C. State, defending NCAA champions, somewhere around 34th. But, try to tell that now to Lewis. He didn't win Saturday; he lost, decisively, 76-64. . . "We were totally outplayed, in every aspect of the game," he criticized. "The rebounding, the missed free throws, the lack of enthusiasm ... those were the turning points. ., - "How can you come up here for ' a game like this and not be enthusiastic, not hustle? One hundred percent of slow is better than 50 percent of quick. We played like we were dead."

UConn's Booters Stunned By MIKE CANDELARIA Special to The Courant ORLANDO, Fla. The dream of a women's national soccer championship ended Saturday for the University of Connecticut as George Mason University of Fair-:' fax, Va., defeated the previously unbeaten Huskies, 1-0, in the semifinal of the NCAA National-Women's Soccer Championship on the campus of the University of Central Florida. The top-ranked Huskies, who" have posted 13 shutouts this sea-, son, were shocked by a goal three minutes into the match and never recovered. George Mason (16-3-2) now will face defending champ University of North Carolina, which beat the University of Massachusetts, 2-0, in the championship game today. 1 The goal by George Mason's Meg Romaine was scored before the 450 spectators could settle into their seats.
