Lovett, defense lead Princeton to 31-3 win over Yale

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) John Lovett scored three rushing touchdowns, the defense had 10 tackles for losses – including five sacks – and Princeton beat Yale 31-3 on Saturday to move into a three-way tie atop the Ivy League.

Rohan Hylton had eight tackles, including 2 1/2 for losses and a sack, for Princeton (7-2, 5-1), which limited Yale to 36 yards rushing and has given up 10 combined points in three games since an overtime loss to Harvard on Oct. 22.

AJ Glass scored on a 46-yard run to cap the Tigers' six-play, 82-yard opening drive.

Yale's Alex Galland made a 24-yard field goal and Princeton's Tavish Rice kicked a 40 yarder to make it 10-3 before Lovett scored on a 2-yard run, 35 seconds before halftime.

Lovett added two 1-yard touchdown runs in the fourth quarter.

Yale (2-7, 2-4) converted just 3 of 17 third downs and had just 200 total yards.
