Harvard asks Brown to reschedule Yom Kippur football game

Harvard University wants to reschedule a football game next month because it conflicts with the start of Yom Kippur.

The September 21 game against Brown University is scheduled for 7:30 P.M., the night Yom Kippur begins.

Harvard fans complained, and the university asked Brown to reschedule, according to the Associated Press. Brown has not decided yet if it will comply.
