Saturday's sporting events brought their fair share of excitement. In the marquee football matchup against Bowdoin, the Jumbos took the Polar Bears into overtime on a 37-yard field goal by Tufts sophomore kicker Adam Auerbach with 27 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter. Auerbach then kicked the winning 35-yard field goal in OT to seal the 25-22 victory.
Among the special events taking place over the weekend were the first annual Jumbo Stampede 5K, organized by Tufts Alumni, and a bicycle ride from the Grafton campus to the Medford/Somerville campus, organized by Tufts Cycling.
Friday evening also brought the annual Homecoming a cappella concert, featuring the vocal stylings of the Amalgamates, Jackson Jills and Beelzebubs. This weekend was doubly special for the Amalgamates, who celebrate their 25th anniversary this month.
