Stewart leads Harvard to 52-18 rout over Columbia
BOSTON (AP) — Tom Stewart passed for 393 yards and a school record-tying five touchdowns, including the three longest scoring strikes in Harvard history, and the Crimson rolled to a 52-18 victory over Columbia in Ivy League play on Saturday.
Stewart tossed the Crimson's longest TD pass — a 92-yarder to Jack Cook on their first play from scrimmage — and added scoring strikes of 75 yards to Tyler Adams and 74 yards to Aaron Shampklin. The senior quarterback had 250 yards passing in the first quarter as Harvard (4-4, 2-3) grabbed a 21-6 lead.
Shampklin, the Ivy League's top rusher, finished with 92 yards and his ninth rushing TD of the season. Cook had three catches for 107 yards, while Henry Taylor hauled in five passes for 105 yards and two scores.
Ty Lenhart passed for 203 yards and a TD with two interceptions — both by Harvard's Wes Ogsbury — for the Lions (4-4, 1-4). Marquavious Moore ran for 73 yards on seven carries and Emerson Kabus had five receptions for 103 yards.
