DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Dartmouth senior cornerback/return specialist Shawn Abuhoff (Hialeah, Fla.) spearheaded a Big Green defense that was on the field less than 21 minutes while allowing just 148 yards in posting a 37-0 shutout win over Columbia. Abuhoff led the team with six tackles, but it was his two forced fumbles early in the third quarter that completely took away any chance of Columbia turning things around in the second half. On the first play from scrimmage in the third quarter, Abuhoff ripped the ball free, allowing a teammate to recover at the Lion 37-yard line. Four plays later, the Big Green reached the end zone to take a 23-0 lead. On the very next Columbia possession, it took three plays before Abuhoff knocked the ball loose again with Dartmouth pouncing on it at the Lion 41-yard line. Again, it took Dartmouth four plays to score a touchdown, putting the game out of reach at 30-0.
