Brandon Colavita carried 16 times for 103 yards and a touchdown as Pennsylvania defeated Columbia 27-13 on Saturday.

The victory was the 200th all-time in Ivy League play for the Quakers (4-1, 2-0), who gained 281 rushing yards to 44 for the Lions (3-2, 1-1). Penn threw just five passes.

With Penn leading 7-3 late in the first quarter, Columbia quarterback Sean Brackett fumbled after being sacked by Brian Wing, and Drew Goldsmith returned it 25 yards for a touchdown.

The Quakers made it 20-3 with a 71-yard, 11-play drive ending in Jeff Jack's 1-yard TD run 2:01 before halftime.

After Brackett's 57-yard pass to Andrew Kennedy got Columbia within 20-10 with 6:49 left in the third quarter, Brad Blackmon's 48-yard kickoff return put Penn at the Lions' 41. Six plays later, Colavita scored from 8 yards out.

Brackett was 18-for-33 passing for 240 yards.
