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
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.
