Bucknell 34, Princeton 9

Brandon Wesley threw for 138 yards and ran for 84 more in

Bucknell’s 34-9 win over Princeton on Saturday night.

Wesley, who ran for three touchdowns, led the offensive attack

for Bucknell (3-1). Trailing 3-2, Wesley pounded in a run from 1

yard out to give the Bison a 10-3 lead. Princeton attempted to

rebound but Josh Eden picked off quarterback Tommy Wornham and took

it 27 yards for the touchdown right before halftime.

Wesley finished the game with 138 yards on 16-29 passing and

added rushing touchdowns from 4 and 6 yards out late in the second

half.

Princeton (0-2) struggled to protect the ball all day as the

Tigers lost 3 of their 5 fumbles and Wornham threw three

interceptions. Bucknell, however, had no turnovers and held the

ball for 38:42 compared to just 21:18 for Princeton.

The win marks Bucknell’s first 3-1 start since 2008.
