Brian John Dowling (born April 1, 1947) was the starting
quarterback of the Yale University football team in the late 1960s.
He set, and held for decades, a number of Yale passing records.
Dowling finished 9th in vote for the 1968 Heisman Trophy, and was
awarded the Nils V. "Swede" Nelson Award for sportsmanship in 1967.
The 1968 team was undefeated and favored going into The Game
against Harvard University. Harvard was undefeated and untied, too.
Harvard, trailing 29-13 with less than a minute remaining, rallied
to tie the game, which ended with a score of 29-29. The contest's
result inspired the Harvard Crimson to print the headline "Harvard
Beats Yale, 29-29." Dowling at that point had lost only one game he
started since the sixth grade. He played football in high school
for St. Ignatius High School, located in Cleveland, OH. In the City
Championship that he started, St. Ignatius lost to Benedictine High
