Torgersen becomes Penn's passing TD leader in victory
PHILADELPHIA (AP) Alek Torgersen went 23 of 33 for 263 yards and threw his second touchdown pass with 15 seconds left to help Penn beat Harvard 27-14 on Friday night.
Justin Watson caught the go-ahead 2-yard touchdown pass on a quick slant to cap a 10-play, 80-yard drive after Harvard had tied it a 14-all with 3:23 left. Two plays later, Harvard fumbled and Tayler Hendrickson returned it 18 yards for a score as time ran out.
Torgersen became Penn's all-time leader in passing touchdowns with 51. He also had a 47-yard touchdown connection with Christian Pearson.
Watson made 10 catches for 120 yards and a touchdown for Penn (6-3, 5-1 Ivy League). Pearson added seven grabs for 101 yards and one TD.
Joseph Viviano III threw for 216 yards and a touchdown Harvard (7-2, 5-1) but was hurt by three interceptions – one that was returned for a 40-yard touchdown by Louis Vecchio to give Penn a 7-3 lead.
