Harvard running back Devin Darrington got a got the capital-P version on Saturday in The Game for, shall we say, giving the Yale defense a one-finger salute. Harvard ended up kicking a field goal on the drive.
Instead of adding another score, the play was called back for unsportsmanlike conduct, and ultimately the Crimson had to settle for a field goal. The gesture has been debated by viewers, but the call stood.
Harvard took a 21-14 lead when Taylor caught a pass from Stewart in the flat and squeezed into the end zone down the left sideline for a 19-yard score with 37 seconds left in the half.
Stewart, who threw for 312 yards and three touchdowns, wheeled off the field on a stretcher in the fourth quarter after taking a hit while dropping down to slide. Ogsbury, however, was penalized for targeting and was ejected.
Darrington, a sophomore, finished with 91 yards on nine carries with two touchdowns.

Counties have until noon on Sunday to file their official results, but it appears the gap is too far for Nelson to close. But Gillum issued only a brief statement saying, "It is not over until every legally cast vote is counted".
"The bottom line is: He was wrong", Murphy said. 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. The two teams combine for the most points (72) in the rivalry's history, and Harvard put up the most points (45) and total yards (578) it ever has in a game against Yale.
Both teams began with a turnover. Darrington later atoned for his transgression with scoring scampers of 4 and 16 yards with 7:59 and 3:51, respectively, to play.
The band played "Sweet Caroline" early in the fourth quarter in keeping with Red Sox tradition at Fenway, which has hosted college football periodically since it opened in 1912.
The Game also included The Finger.
