Torgersen accounts for 3 TDs; Penn beats Dartmouth 37-24
HANOVER, N.H. (AP) Alek Torgersen threw a touchdown pass and ran for two more scores as Pennsylvania rolled to a 37-24 victory over Dartmouth in the Ivy League opener for both teams on Friday night.
Torgersen finished with 188 yards passing, and bounced back from having his 17-game TD-passing streak snapped in a 31-17 loss at Fordham last week. He capped the Quakers' opening drive with a 28-yard scoring strike to Christian Pearson. Torgersen also bullied in from the 4 and 3-yard lines to help stretch Penn's lead to 35-10 late in the third quarter.
Tre Solomon ran for 107 yards on 29 carries and had scoring runs of 1 and 7 yards for Penn (1-2, 1-0).
Jack Heneghan was 27 of 43 for 289 yards passing, and threw two touchdown passes late in the fourth quarter to lead Dartmouth (2-1, 0-1).
It was second-year Penn coach Ray Priore's first win against Dartmouth.
