Witt will be playing against Harvard

Patrick Witt has decided to play in Saturday's season finale against Havard and is no longer actively pursuing the Rhodes Scholarship.

Witt made the decision official on Sunday, a day after he set Yale's career record for passing yards.

Witt made it through the first two levels of the process for the Rhodes Scholarship and was named a finalist for the prestigious scholarship. His final interview was scheduled for Saturday in Atlanta, meaning that he would have to pick between attending the interview and staying around in case the Rhodes committee requested a follow-up interview or suiting up against Harvard.

“I will be playing in the Yale-Harvard game this Saturday," Witt said in a statement released by Yale. "I have withdrawn my application for the Rhodes Scholarship. My focus this week is solely on preparing for the Game alongside my teammates and coaches.
