Colgate surges past Bucknell 21-6
LEWISBURG, Pa. (AP) John Wilkins scored two of Colgate’s three touchdowns in the third quarter and the Raiders pushed past Bucknell 21-6 on Saturday.
Trailing 6-0 at halftime, Jake Melville threw a 64-yard strike to John Maddaluna, setting up Wilkins’ 2-yard rushing touchdown just a minute into the second half.
Melville connected with Ed Pavalko on a 4-yard score two drives later. Bucknell’s Brian Regan fumbled on the ensuing kickoff and Kyle Diener recovered it for Colgate (5-7, 3-3 Patriot).
Melville was sacked, but then converted the third-and-long with a 28-yard pass to Alex Greenawalt. Wilkins plunged in from 3 yards out for the final margin.
Trey Lauletta couldn’t rally the Bison (8-3, 4-2), throwing two of his three interceptions in the final quarter.
Melville threw for 140 yards on 9-of-21 passing. Wilkins had 51 yards on 12 carries.
Lauletta threw for 229 yards and Will Carter had 81 yards receiving.
