Former BU defenseman Peter Yetten's name was in the news this week, but for his other athletic exploits as a Terrier. Forty-three years ago today, Yetten, who skated for the 1971 National Champions, QB'd BU's football team to its first-even win against Harvard, as noted by "This Week in College Football."
October 4, 1969 - Boston University scored the first victory in school history over crosstown rival Harvard 13-10 in Boston. After trailing 10-7 at halftime, the Terriers got a touchdown pass from quarterback Pete Yetten to wingback Gary Capehart early in the fourth quarter to take the lead. Boston shut down the Crimson passing game, allowing just 32 yards on 16 attempts, and limited Harvard to 100 total yards in the second half. For Harvard, the loss snapped a 10-game unbeaten string.
