NEW YORK (AP) Alex Park passed for 268 yards and two touchdowns, Kyle Bramble rushed for 126 yards and a touchdown and Dartmouth handed Columbia its 17th straight loss 27-7 on Saturday.

Bramble got the Big Green (5-1, 3-0) off to a quick start with a 33-yard scoring run on the first drive. Park hit Victor Williams with an 11-yard strike in the second quarter to make it 17-0.

The Lions (0-6, 0-3), who have lost 11 straight league games, got on the board with a 9-yard pass from Trevor McDonagh to Andrew Dobitsch with 3:44 left before the half but Dartmouth responded with a quick drive, capped by a 13-yard pass from Park to Williams with 47 seconds left.

Alex Gakenheimer’s second field goal was the only scoring in the second half.
