On the ground: Super Bowl snapshots

At 7:52 p.m., the Saybrook 12-pack erupted. There were 18 seconds left on the clock in the second quarter of Super Bowl XLIII.

W. HOCKEY | Elis’ success at home

Normally bringing fire to a hockey rink would be a bad idea. The women’s hockey team didn’t get that memo and the Bulldogs (8-12-0, 4-9-0 ECAC) came to Ingalls Rink blazing on Friday night, torching Cornell (10-9-2, 6-6-2) in a 3-1 victory.
