FOOTBALL EYES ON YALE AND WEST POINT;
Big Demand for Tickets to Annual Clash on Cadets’ Field To-morrow.
Although the football season has about reached the half-way mark, the real tests for the big college elevens are yet to begin. To-morrow will mark the beginning of that one month of real football wherein the important battles of the year will be fought, the class of the various elevens fully established and finally the championship of 1911 decided.

WEST POINT PLOWS THROUGH MUD AND WATER TO VICTORY;

Yale Humbled Soon After Game Starts by a Touchdown and Goal Scored by Full Back Dean — Field Covered with Water.
Special to The New York Times. October 22, 1911
WEST POINT, Oct. 21. — Not since Harvard and Yale fought their memorable battle in the rain and in the mud at New Haven in 1898, have two big elevens been called on to rush and boot a football over such a field as that on which Yale and the Army played to-day.

YALE OFFERS NO EXCUSE.; Eli’s Defeat at West Point Clean-Cut Victory for the Army.
Special to The New York Times. October 23, 1911
NEW HAVEN, Conn., Oct. 22. — None of the Yale football coaches or players gave any excuse to-night for yesterday’s defeat at West Point. Everybody accorded the Army a clean-cut victory, yet every one was sorry that Capt. Howe could not have played, and that the game had to be fought on a field of mud.

WEST POINT’S CLEAN SLATE IS BROKEN; Colgate Scores Six Points, but Army Wins from Up-State Collegians.
Special to The New York Times. November 19, 1911
WEST POINT, N.Y., Nov. 18. — The clean football slate that the Army had hopes of carrying through this season was spoiled to-day by the fleet little backs of the Colgate team, who tore around the Army flanks for long gains and finally went sailing across the Army goal line for the first touchdown that has been made against the Army team.

DALTON KICKS GOAL FOR NAVY VICTORY; Annapolis Captain Again Defeats Army by Sending Ball Over Cross Bars.
Special to The New York Times. November 26, 1911
PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 25. — Beating back every invasion the Army attempted, and fighting so desperately from beginning to end and forcing their opponents to retreat within their own territory during most of the battle, the Navy football eleven triumphed over West Point this afternoon on Franklin Field by a score of 3 to 0.
