New Haven, Conn. — Two touchdowns on the ground. Two more in the air. And in the locker room the message from Paul Stanton’s coach and captain was a reminder: Don’t relax in the second half.

“This was a huge game to play in,” the Harvard running back said on Saturday after scoring four touchdowns to tie a record for the 138-year history of The Game, leading the Crimson to a 34-7 victory over Yale and helping them earn a share of the Ivy League title. “To go out there and play my best was awesome.”

It was the seventh consecutive victory in The Game for Harvard (9-1, 6-1 Ivy League), which tied for the conference championship when Dartmouth beat Princeton (8-2, 6-1) later Saturday 28-24. Stanton’s four touchdowns — all in the first half — were the most since Eddie Mahan scored four times in The Game in 1915.

On a cold and windy day before a crowd of 50,934 at the 99-year-old Yale Bowl, Stanton staked the Crimson to a 28-0 lead. But it was only last week that the Crimson opened a 38-0 lead against Penn before scraping by with a 38-30 victory.

Cornell 42, Penn 41

Philadelphia — Jeff Matthews threw for four touchdowns and ran in a fifth as Cornell held off a late Penn rally to win in its season finale.

Matthews completed 33 of his 47 passes for 467 yards, sending TD passes to three difference receivers. Luke Hagy hauled in two, a 19-yarder to give the Big Red the lead in the third quarter and an 8-yard yarder in the fourth.

The other two TD grabs were by Grant Gellatly and Lucas Shapiro. Cornell (3-7, 2-5 Ivy) also scored on a blocked punt.

Brown 48, Columbia 7

New York — Patrick Donnelly passed for four touchdowns, and Brown wrapped up its sixth consecutive winning season with a victory over Columbia.

John Spooney ran for 186 yards and one touchdown for the Bears (6-4, 3-4). Spooney became the seventh player in Brown history to rush for over 1,000 yards in a season, finishing with 1,170. He also had a touchdown catch.

Donnelly completed 22 of 37 passes for 305 yards. Tellef Lundevall was the leading Brown receiver with 151 yards on eight catches. The senior’s 216 career receptions rank seventh in Ivy League history.

Brown rolled up 627 yards. It led 24-0 at halftime.

The loss ended a winless season for the Lions (0-10, 0-7), their first since they had four in a row from 1984-87. Columbia managed only 73 points this season, its lowest total since 1958. It also gave up 402 points, a school record.
