■ Head to head: This will be the 76th meeting. Harvard has dominated the series at 60-14-1, with 13 straight wins.
■ Offensive leaders: Harvard — QB Jake Smith (920 yards, 5 TDs, 5 INTs); QB Joe Viviano (415 yards, 1 TD, on 34 completions); RB Charlie Booker III (651 yards, 6 TDs); RB Aaron Shampklin (272 yards, 3 TDs); WR Justice Shelton-Mosley (21 receptions, 262 yards); WR Taylor Henry (14 receptions, 214 yards, 2 TDs); TE Ryan Antonellis (19 receptions, 215 yards, 2 TDs).

■ Of note: Tim Murphy called the Lions “the best Columbia team in my 24 years” as Crimson coach. Columbia is tied atop the Ivy League standings as it chases its first Ivy League title since 1961. Said Murphy: “Their defense is big, strong, and physical . . . They blitz and play man coverage . . . They’re a play or two away from being undefeated.” Columbia suffered a 23-6 loss to Yale last week, ending a seven-game win streak that dated to last season . . . Harvard’s Smith was named co-Rookie of the Week in the Ivy after throwing for 125 yards and three touchdowns in a 25-22 win over Dartmouth last Saturday.
