Overview

Bowl Full of Memories: 100 Years of Football at the Yale Bowl covers Yale football from its inception in 1872 and pays tribute to the historic Yale Bowl, which celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2014. Based on more than 150 interviews—more than 100 of which were conducted with former players—the book serves as a time capsule of Yale football by those who took part in this most storied college football program. Players, coaches, writers, broadcasters, and fans give their view of the spectacle, people, places, and contests that make Yale football history come to life. Marazzi, who has seen almost every game in the Yale Bowl in the last 50 years, gives due attention to the career of towering figures like legendary Yale football coach Walter Camp, whose story is important to understanding Yale football and the evolution of the game as we know it. And of course he covers one of the oldest rivalries in college sports, between Yale and Harvard.

The book takes readers into the huddle, the locker room, the practice field, the campus, and the hearts and minds of Yalies over the past century. Bowl Full of Memories: 100 Years of Football at the Yale Bowl is a book that every Yale alum and Ivy League and college football fan will want to own and refer to often.
