Once again, Oles can feast on Carleton's loss

In what is becoming something of a tradition, Carleton College President Steven G. Poskanzer will arrive on campus early Tuesday morning to settle a bet by serving breakfast to St. Olaf students.

For the second year, St. Olaf President David R. Anderson '74 and Poskanzer (at left in photo) agreed that the president whose team lost the annual St. Olaf-Carleton football game would don a sweatshirt from the winning institution and serve breakfast to its students. And for the second year, the Oles won that game — this time in a 28-7 victory over the Knights.

Both presidents will begin serving breakfast in Stav Hall at 7:30 a.m. on November 8. Check out a video of Poskanzer settling his debts last year, with the help of Anderson and Ole the Lion.
