2010 Game To Remember

Sixth in a series of the most memorable games of each year of BGA. . .. . .

Dartmouth 31, Princeton 0
Nov. 20, 2010

Dartmouth ended a string of 13 years without a winning season with a convincing win over Princeton to finish the season at 6-4.

Tailback Nick Schwieger, who would go on to sign with the St. Louis Rams, ran for three touchdowns, Dan Rooney connected with Timmy McManus for a 69-yard touchdown and Foley Schmidt kicked a field goal as the Big Green fashioned its first shutout since the undefeated 1996 team whitewashed the Tigers in the finale at Princeton.

Shawn Abuhoff ensured the shutout with an interception of a second-and-goal pass at the Dartmouth one-yard line with 2:18 remaining.

The first victory over Princeton since the 2003 season sparked a winning streak over the Tigers that reached six games last November.
