There's no such thing as civility in some of our nation's oldest universities - we all know that - and some of that bad behavior found its way onto the football field on Saturday.

Harvard running back Devin Darrington had a fourth-quarter touchdown run called back on an unsportmanlike penalty because he flipped off the chasing Yale defenders.

Devin Darrington #36 of the Harvard Crimson reacts with teammates after scoring a touchdown during a game against the Yale Bulldogs at Fenway Park on November 17, 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts.

The Game took on an ominous tone after Harvard senior quarterback Tom Stewart (18-of-27 for 312 yards and three touchdowns), crumpled in a heap with 4:03 to go. But Harvard controlled the game the rest of the way to come away with a 45-27 win in the 135th meeting between the schools.

"They said it could be a hip displacement, " said Harvard coach Tim Murphy, of Stewart, who was banged up in last week's victory at Penn. "It's that simple. It was the right call". As doctors attended to him, players on both teams kneeled; Yale quarterback Griffin O'Connor made the sign of the cross. Darrington finished with nine carries for 91 yards. I'm just so grateful to our team that he didn't have to learn that the absolute hard way of having to live with that.

Stewart's 15-yard pass to Jack Cook gave Harvard a 28-24 lead with 5 minutes left in the third, then another Yale field goal cut the deficit to one point.

After the Bulldogs' Alex Galland shanked a second quarter punt out of bounds at the Harvard 38, the Crimson (6-4, 4-3 Ivy) lined up in a wildcat formation.
