Quarterback-utility back John Lovett accounted for a school record seven touchdowns including five in the last 20 minutes of the first half.

Lovett completed 10-of-11 passes for 194 yards and ran for 47 yards on six rushes. He also caught two passes. Chad Kanoff was 17-for-23 for 198 yards and one touchdown for the Tigers, who tied a school record with 645 total yards. Dalton Banks was 25-for-40 for 214 yards for Cornell.

The Quakers did all their scoring in the first half and Brown all of its scoring in the third quarter in a surprisingly close Homecoming game in Philadelphia.
