Kurt Rawlings connected with Christopher Williams-Lopez for a 4-yard touchdown with 4:11 remaining and Yale rallied for a 24-19 victory over Penn.
Rawlings threw for 199 yards and two TDs for the Bulldogs (5-1, 2-1 Ivy League), who won at Penn (2-4, 0-3) for the first time since 2007. Yale’s Zane Dudek carried 12 times for 103 yards and a score.
The Quakers, who trailed 18-10 at the half, recovered a pair of fumbles in the fourth quarter to take a 19-18 lead. The first turnover led to Jack Soslow’s 44-yard field goal and the second resulted in a 2-yard TD run by Tre Solomon (above). But Rawlings led the Bulldogs on an 11-play, 80-yard drive for the winning score.
Penn senior Justin Watson caught 10 passes for 120 yards and a 23-yard touchdown reception. It was an Ivy League record 16th career game with at least 100 yards receiving and he tied a school record with a TD catch in his sixth straight game. His 27 career scores ties the school record.
