Kenny Gunter gained 119 yards on 23 carries, including a 3-yard run for the game’s first score, as Princeton defeated Yale 24-17 on Saturday.
The Tigers (3-6, 2-4 Ivy League) took a 14-0 first-quarter lead to win for the 50th time in the series, which Yale (4-5, 2-4) leads 72-50-10.
Princeton’s second score came on a 2-yard run by quarterback Tommy Wornham, who rushed for 55 yards and was 16-of-23 passing for 136 yards.
Matt Zimmerman’s 30-yard run put Princeton ahead 21-3 with 11:04 left in the third quarter before Yale cut it to 21-17 on Patrick Witt’s 33-yard pass to Peter Balsam and Shane Bannon’s 1-yard run.
Witt was intercepted by Dan Kopolovich at the Princeton 17 late in the third quarter and by Glenn Wakam at the Yale 14 midway through the fourth. Wakam’s pick led to Ben Bologna’s 27-yard field goal for the final margin.
