The Ivy League institution will host the HBCU on October 5 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. According to the press release, the game marks the first meeting between the two.
HBCU Gameday writes Harvard concluded the 2018 season 6-4, while Howard finished the year 4-6. The site adds the last time both schools met was in 2016, during a game of college basketball.
