Princeton, n.j. — John Lovett spearheaded a Princeton offense that gained more than 500 total yards and the Tigers matched their season high point total in a 66-0 rout of Cornell in an Ivy League showdown on Saturday.

A year ago, Princeton rolled into this game with a 5-1 record, having scoring 50 points in three straight games only to have Cornell eke out a 29-28 victory. The Tigers did not win another game.

This time Princeton improved to 7-0 for the first time since 1995 and extended its win streak to seven games for just the second time in the last 23 seasons.

The Tigers host unbeaten Dartmouth on Saturday.

Princeton has scored at least 48 points in every home game this season, and against the Big Red (3-3, 2-1) it used 13 players in a running game that racked up 358 yards and seven touchdowns.

Columbia 17, Yale 10

New York — Ryan Young ran 30 yards for a tiebreaking, fourth-quarter touchdown and Columbia (4-3, 1-3) picked up its first Ivy League win this season with a victory over defending conference champion Yale (4-2, 2-2).

Jimmy Check — starting for Yale in place of league passing leader Kurt Rawlings, who was lost for the season with a broken leg against Penn last week — was 18-of-35 for 238 yards and two interceptions, including a pick by Ryan Gilbert in the Columbia end zone with 32 seconds left.

The win was just the 22nd for Columbia in 97 games between the schools.

Penn 13, Brown 7

Providence, r.i. — Karekin Brooks rushed for 246 yards and the Penn defense shut down Brown.

Penn (5-2, 2-2 Ivy League) scored its only points in the first half on its way to sending the Bears (1-6, 0-4) to their 12th straight conference loss, dating back to the 2016 season.

The Quakers, who have won four straight games over Brown, finished with 370 total yards while limiting Brown to 195 yards.
