    Game will be at Holy Cross in Worcester at Fitton Field.
    Information about Fitton Field


    The first home football game ever played at Holy Cross was a 6-0 defeat of Massachusetts Agricultural College on Sept. 26, 1903. It was not until 1905, however, that the field was dedicated Fitton Field, and again it was a meeting with the Aggies that christened the new field. This time, the Crusaders won 17-0.

    I believe we were called the Mass Aggies
