Brown/Yale Weekend

Cornell's first ever meeting with Yale occurred in 1898. Cornell would not meet Brown for the first time until the 1949-1950 season, a 39-32 Cornell win in Ithaca on January 2, 1950. Below, the Cornell Daily Sun's January 8, 1954 issue previews the second ever meeting between the Big Red and Brown. The Sun's January 11, 1954 issue recaps Cornell's dominating 72-54 win in Ithaca on January 9.
