1984 Dartmouth-Yale Broadcast

It's rare to stumble across a full Dartmouth football TV broadcast archived on the web but the 1984 game against Yale in the Bowl is one of them.

Spoiler alert: Rather than ruin the suspense for anyone hungry for football and choosing to watch the game without knowing what happened, a brief synopsis of how it turned out will be at the bottom of this post.

Check out the broadcast here:

As long as the topic is Dartmouth football video from yesteryear, following up on Thursday's link to video of the 1961 Harvard game, if you have the patience to watch the black-and-white scout film you can also check out the 1962 Dartmouth-Harvard game HERE, and the '63 Dartmouth-Harvard game HERE.
Dartmouth is in the running for a two-sport receiver with 232 career receptions and taking aim at the all-time North Carolina record. According to this STORY, Sage Surratt, who made 97 catches a year ago . . .
". . . has offers from Dartmouth, Harvard, North Carolina, Princeton, South Carolina and Yale for football. North Carolina and Yale have mentioned that playing basketball could also be a possibility."
In the 1984 Dartmouth-Yale game shown above, quarterback Mike Caraviello completed 30-of-48 passes for 307 yards to set school records for attempts and completions as Dartmouth fell, 28-18, before 25,372 at the Bowl. Filling in for the injured Rich Weissman, Lorenzo Chambers ran for 55 yards and caught seven passes for 79 yards.
