Historic Cranberry Bowl Enters 41st Edition
BUZZARDS BAY, Mass. — Peter Mazzaferro can tell you how he coached (future Pats boss) Dick MacPherson on the freshman team at Springfield College in the 1950s. Mazzaferro will gladly talk about his beloved Centre College’s 1921 upset of Harvard’s previously undefeated team, 6-0, that spawned the nickname “Praying Colonels” for his alma mater. Yet, few topics perk up the spry 89-year-old retired coach more than that of the 41st Cranberry Bowl.
