On To Cambridge (Allston Actually)

Still no power this morning so this has to be quick before the battery running the lights and the rest goes out . . .

Last night's wrap:

Princeton 21, Cornell 7
The Tigers got 95 yards rushing and two touchdowns from Collin Eaddy to outlast the Big Red and run their winning streak to 17 games. Held scoreless in the opening quarter for the first time this season, Princeton started the scoring on a three-yard Eaddy run in the second quarter and took a 14-0 lead into the break. After Cornell closed to within 14-7 in the third quarter, Princeton answered right back with a 75-yard drive capped by a four-yard Eaddy burst to close out the scoring. Apart from the final score, the game was relatively even with both teams recording 19 first downs and Princeton having a narrow 353-327 advantage in total yards. Cornell was just 1-of-11 on third down and the Tigers 5-of-16. Princeton was stopped on fourth-and-short in Big Red territory twice, keeping the home team's hopes alive. Princeton will now bring a 7-0 overall record and a 4-0 Ivy League mark into next week's game against Dartmouth at Yankee Stadium. Cornell is now 2-5 overall and 1-3 in conference. Attendance on a cold night for the nationally televised game was a disappointing, 1,745.
