PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) John Lovett spearheaded a Princeton offense that gained more than 500 total yards and the Tigers matched their season high point total in a 66-0 rout of Cornell in an Ivy League showdown Saturday.
A year ago, Princeton rolled into this game with a 5-1 record, having scoring 50 points in three straight games only to have Cornell eke out a 29-28 victory. The Tigers did not win another game.
This time Princeton improved to 7-0 for the first time since 1995 and extended its win streak to seven games for just the second time in the last 23 seasons.
Princeton has scored at least 48 points in every home game this season, and against the Big Red (3-3, 2-1) it used 13 players in a running game that racked up 358 yards and seven touchdowns. Lovett rushed for 159 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries while completing 12 of 16 passes for 133 yards and a score. Charlie Volker had 10 carries for 30 yards and three touchdowns.
Princeton faces unbeaten Dartmouth Saturday.
