CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- A fake field goal. A surprise onside kick. Even some naked revelers in the Yale student section attempting to distract archrival Harvard.And the biggest trick of all from Yale in the 133rd edition of The Game: A 21-14 upset over the Crimson on Saturday to end a nine-year losing streak in one of the oldest rivalries in sports and spoil Harvards chances of an unprecedented fourth straight Ivy League title.Theres been a long streak. We dont like to talk about it, said Yale quarterback Kurt Rawlings, a freshman who threw for two touchdowns and ran for 74 yards. But its over. Now its our streak.Harvard (7-3, 5-2 Ivy) needed a victory to clinch a share of the conference championship . The Bulldogs (3-7, 3-4) had little to play for except a chance to spoil Harvards season.Thats exactly what they did.After setting up their first touchdown with a fake field goal, Yale opened the second half with an onside kick and scored to take its first lead. The Bulldogs went ahead for good with 4:14 left on a 3-yard touchdown pass from Rawlings to Reed Klubnik, who had the ball knocked out of his hands just after he reached across the goal line.Harvard coaches protested along the sideline. (There is no replay in the Ivy League.)The Crimson had two possessions in the final minutes, but couldnt score. Harvard players walked glumly back to their field house after blowing the chance to become the first class ever to win four straight conference championships.The nine straight Crimson victories in The Game was the longest winning streak in the history of a rivalry that was first played in 1875.Something we havent experienced in a long time is you can put it all out there, you can work as hard as you can, you can believe. And when you do that you still risk getting your heart broken, Harvard coach Tim Murphy said. Thats certainly what happened today.THE TAKEAWAYYale: Tony Reno picked up his first win against Harvard as head coach. He had also worked in both Cambridge and New Haven as an assistant.You grow as a season goes on. This team grew every week, Reno said. Sometimes it wasnt easy to see in the score, but what you saw today was the work we put in all year.Harvard: The Crimson could have clinched a share of the conference title either last week, against Penn, or in the finale. Instead, they end with two straight losses.Penn and Princeton both won on Saturday and will share the Ivy title.LET THE DANCING BEGINAfter the final kneel-down, Yale students poured out of the stands to celebrate with the team at midfield. Others danced in the form of a giant Y in the corner of Harvard Stadium that was the full height of the seating bowl.I was overjoyed, obviously, linebacker Darius Manora said, noting that he had played his last Game but would not stop rooting for the team: As an alum, Im excited for the future.NAKED STUDENTSOther Yale fans didnt wait for the end of the game to let it all out in support of their team.Although the traditional mid-November matchup has seen some days so frigid that fans head home with frostbite, this one was played under sunny skies and temperatures in the 50s.That was warm enough for a dozen or so students in the Yale student section to strip off their clothes and dance naked on the concrete wall of the century-old stadium. Police were seen escorting some from the stands, but a Harvard spokeswoman said there were no arrests.SLOW STARTIt took some time for the teams to get their bearings, playing 25 scoreless minutes and punting a combined 11 times to start the game before Charlie Booker bounced around the right end for a 27-yard touchdown to give Harvard a 7-0 lead late in the second quarter.Rawlings started Yales next drive with a 28-yard run and then the Bulldogs kept it going with a 16-yard jump pass on a fake field goal that put the ball on the 3. Alan Lamar ran it in from the 1.To start the second, Yale pulled off an onside kick that led to a 28-yard pass to Klubnik that gave the Bulldogs a 14-7 lead.Harvard tied it, picking up 34 yards to the Yale 2 on a fourth-and-3. Three plays later, Joe Viviano found Ryan Halvorson in the end zone to make it 14-all.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 .

The 36-year-old American also turned in the top time in Thursdays opening training session.PHOENIX - The Miami Marlins managed three hits off the Arizona Diamondbacks. Two of them were booming home runs off the bat of Giancarlo Stanton. That was the difference in the Marlins 3-2 victory on Monday night, the Diamondbacks fourth loss in a row. Patrick Corbin, trying to become the first left-handed starter in 35 years to go 10-0, allowed two hits through eight innings but gave up a soaring, two-run homer to left by Stanton that tied the game at 2 in the sixth. Stantons line-drive home run to right off ex-Marlin Heath Bell (2-1) in the ninth put Miami ahead for the first time. It was the 100th homer of his career, and sixth in 43 at-bats at Chase Field. "He took that thing over, didnt he?" Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "Yeah, that was an impressive, impressive night for him." Stanton, activated June 10 after six weeks on the disabled list with a right hamstring strain, said both were good pitches. "Just help the team win, man," Stanton said. "Thats what I didnt do all April and obviously all May I wasnt playing." Redmond said he expected an adjustment period for Stanton when he came off the DL. "And there really wasnt," the manager said. "He came off the DL swinging the bat great. You could just see he was more confident. His swing was better, everything was better. Hes been lights out ever since." Bell pitched all of last season for Miami, and Stanton was asked if his familiarity with the relievers pattern helped him in the at bat. "Yeah," Stanton said, "for the most part." Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said its time to reassess how to pitch to Stanton. "The guy is swinging the bat good. We have to find a better way to get around him," Gibson said. "You can see how strong he is. He just barrelled it." Mike Dunn (2-1) threw a scoreless eighth inning to get the win. Steve Cishek pitched a perfect ninth for his 10th save in 12 tries. Willie Bloomquist flied out to deep centre to end the game. Paul Goldschmidt drove in both Arizona runs with a homer and a single. Corbin, with no decisions in his last three starts, was trying to become the first left-handed starter to begin the season 10-0 since Ron Guidry went 13-0 for the New York Yankees in 1978, according to STATS.dddddddddddd Corbin struck out seven and walked one but the Diamondbacks lost for the first time in his 14 starts. Gibson said Corbin deserved better. "Patrick was great," Gibson said. "He pitched his heart out, two runs. We scored eight runs in four games. ... We should have had several runs tonight. We are in a bad spot at the plate right now. Guys are trying to do too much. " Arizona was 1 for 12 with runners in scoring position. "More of the same," Gibson said. Goldschmidt, hitless in his previous 12 at-bats and just 3 for 33, lined Jacob Turners 1-0 pitch over the right-field fence to put Arizona up 1-0 in the third, his 16th home run. The Diamondbacks made it 2-0 in the fifth when Gerardo Parra singled, stole second and scored when Goldschmidt singled sharply to centre. Goldschmidt leads the NL with 61 RBIs. Corbin, meanwhile, was cruising through five. Only two Miami batters reached during that span, Stanton on third baseman Martin Prados two-out error in the first and a two-out walk to Marcell Ozuna in the fourth. In the sixth, pinch-hitter Justin Ruggiano grounded out, but Juan Pierres opposite-field single to left ended the no-hit bid. Ed Lucas popped out but Stanton hit a high drive on Corbins 2-0 pitch into the second deck above the Arizona bullpen in left and it was tied at 2. The Diamondbacks, swept in three games at San Diego last weekend, opened a six-game homestand. Turner allowed two runs and six hits in five innings. NOTES: Diamondbacks RHP Ian Kennedy dropped his appeal and began serving a 10-game suspension for his role in last weeks brawl with the Dodgers. ... Arizona RHP Randall Delgado, who came over from Atlanta in the Justin Upton trade, will be recalled from Triple-A Reno to start Tuesday night in the spot normally taken by RHP Brandon McCarthy. Miami RHP Nathan Eovaldi, out all season with right shoulder inflammation, will make his first start of the year. To make room for Eovaldi, the Marlins optioned Ozuna to Double-A Jacksonville. ... McCarthy, out with a shoulder injury, threw off a mound and could get a rehab start next. McCarthy says a seizure, related to the head injury he sustained from a line drive last September, will not affect his comeback.
