Yale 29, Columbia 14

NEW YORK (AP) -- Robert Carr ran for 129 yards and three touchdowns, and Alvin Cowan threw for 322 yards to lead Yale past Columbia 29-14 Saturday.

Carr had scoring runs of 1, 4 and 2 yards in the first half to help the Bulldogs (5-2, 3-1 Ivy League) to a 23-7 halftime lead.

Carr's first touchdown run put Yale in front 6-0, but Columbia (2-5, 1-3) blocked John Troost's extra-point attempt and then mounted a 55-yard drive that ended with Jeff Otis throwing a 14-yard scoring pass to Wade Fletcher.

Yale responded with a 52-yard scoring drive that culminated with Carr's 4-yard scoring run, putting the Bulldogs ahead for good at 13-7.

With the win, Yale remained tied with Harvard for second place in the conference, one game behind Penn.

Otis threw his second touchdown pass in the third quarter, a 28-yarder to John Reuter, to cut Yale's lead to 23-14.

Troost kicked field goals of 33 and 23 yards in the fourth quarter to complete the scoring.

Otis completed 17 of 30 passes for 234 yards. Cowan was 22-for-38.

Yale now has a 60-18-2 edge in the series that began in 1872, and has a higher winning percentage against Columbia than any other Ivy League opponent.
