Princeton 33, Columbia 6
NEW YORK -- Freshman Anthony Gaffney returned the opening kickoff 94 yards for a touchdown and Princeton didn't look back, beating Columbia 33-6 on Saturday in the Ivy League opener for both teams.
Nolan Bieck, who missed all three previous field goal attempts this season, converted from 34-, and 20-yards to seal the victory for Princeton.
The win marks Princeton's first of the 2012 season, ending a nine-game losing streak dating to last season. Princeton, which lost its previous two games by a combined four points, hadn't won since Week 3 of the 2011 season when they beat Columbia 24-21.
