Your Ivy League/Dartmouth opponent roundup . . .
Brown 24, Holy Cross 21
On the road and in a 21-10 hole to start the fourth quarter, the Bears rallied behind quarterback Patrick Donnelly (two passing TDs, one on the ground) and tailback Spiro Theodosi (120 rushing yards). Kevin Watson had 223 passing yards with one TD in the air and one on the ground for Dartmouth's next opponent.
Columbia 10, Marist 9
When was the last time the Columbia run defense held a team to 21 yards on the ground? The Lions were outgained on the game 314-255 but got 115 yards rushing from Marcorus Garrett and a holding call on an apparent 76-yard Marist TD pass in the fourth quarter to win their debut under coach Pete Mangurian.
Fordham 34, Cornell 27
Jeff Mathews passed for 489 yards and three touchdowns and three of his receivers caught at least 10 passes but the Big Red managed just 29 yards on the ground while Fordham's Carlton Koonce was running for 176 and two scores.
Harvard 28, San Diego 13
Treavor Scales ran for 177 yards and two touchdowns and the Crimson limited San Diego to two yards rushing on 24 carries. Colton Chapple was 16-for-29 for 209 yards for Harvard.
Lafayette 28, Penn 21
Penn tossed seven, count 'em, seven interceptions and still lost by only a touchdown. Billy Ragone suffered five of the picks and Penn managed just 79 yards on the ground against what is looking like a pretty good Lafayette team. The Leopards beat William & Mary last week.
Lehigh 17, Princeton 14
Trailing 17-0 entering the fourth quarter, Princeton got within three on Akil Sharp's second rushing TD with 4:54 left. Lehigh had a 405-206 advantage in yards against Princeton, which got just 14-of-30 passing for 103 yards from starting QB Connor Michelsen.
Yale 24, Georgetown 21
Freshman Tyler Varga ran for 93 yards and two touchdowns and Yale survived three interceptions by freshman quarterback Eric Williams (19-of-30 for 250 yards) to open with a win over the Hoyas for the sixth consecutive year. Georgetown, which ran for 260 yards, reached the Yale 33 on the final possession before seeing their hopes extinguished with a first-down interception.
Colgate 35, Sacred Heart 14
Jordan McCord punished the Pioneers with 167 yards rushing and Colgate broke a 14-14 halftime tie with a 21-point third quarter to win for the first time.
