The Harvard Crimson football program represents Harvard University in college football at the NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision (formerly Division I-AA). Harvard’s football program is one of the oldest in the world, having begun competing in the sport in 1873. The Crimson has a legacy that includes 13 national championships and 20 College Football Hall of Fame inductees, including the first African-American college football player William H. Lewis, Huntington “Tack” Hardwick, Barry Wood, Percy Haughton, and Eddie Mahan. Harvard is the eighth winningest team in NCAA Division I football history. The Crimson play their home games at Harvard Stadium in Boston, Massachusetts. In summer 2020, the Ivy League announced that the fall season would be postponed or even cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Play did not resume until September 2021, after a nearly two-year hiatus, with a 44-9 victory over Georgetown.
