Nov. 20, 2010, Princeton, N.J. – Dartmouth 31, Princeton 0

The Big Green dominated both sides of the ball to finish 6-4 and celebrate its first winning season since 1997.

Tailback Nick Schwieger topped the century mark for the sixth time in the season with 105 yards and the Dartmouth defense posted its first shutout since the unbeaten and untied 1996 Ivy League champions turned the trick in their final game, also against Princeton.

Schwieger had TD runs of six yards in the first quarter and three in the second to give Dartmouth a 14-0 lead aft the half.

Foley Schmidt’s 21-yard field goal made it 17-0 after three and there were smiles all the way around in the fourth quarter as popular third-team quarterback Dan Rooney hit Timmy McManus for a 69-yard touchdown to end the scoring with 9:52 remaining.

Luke Hussey and Charles Bay each posted 10 tackles for Dartmouth, which got the whitewash when Shawn Abuhoff intercepted a Princeton pass at the 1-yard line with 2:18 remaining.

Princeton actually had a 21-19 advantage in first downs but Dartmouth outgained the Tigers, 348 yards to 284 to help Big Green defensive coordinator Don Dobes win family bragging rights over son Kevin, a Princeton defensive back.

Chase Womack also had a key interception at the Dartmouth 15.
