The football hangs in midair after Western New England University’s game-tying extra point was blocked by Anthony M. Emberley ‘17 with 42 seconds left in the game on Saturday night. Both teams entered the contest undefeated and despite trailing 21-0 in the first half, WNEU fought back to tie the game at 28-28 in the third quarter. After scoring their fifth touchdown WNEU had a chance to even the score at 35-35 with less than one minute remaining, but Emberley’s block dashed WNEU’s hopes of sending the game into overtime and left MIT with a 6-0 record.

A hack referencing Jack and the Beanstalk was deployed on top of the 3rd floor skywalk connecting buildings 66 and 68 late Friday (Oct. 24) night. The hack features a wooden castle, paper maché clouds, and a beanstalk running the height of the building. A stuffed Jack Florey figure is climbing the plant, complete with a bag of (fake) gold. The coat of arms on the castle bears the greek letter phi, a noodle dish called pho, and a thumbs up that, when pronounced, refer to the chant shouted by the fairytail’s giant: “Fee fi fo fum!”
