EASTON, Pa. (AP) -- Clifton Dawson rushed for 172 yards and three
touchdowns to lead Harvard to a 38-23 win over Lafayette on
Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 13 of 24 passes for 218 yards and
threw one touchdown and ran for another in the first half to lead
Harvard (3-0) to a 21-10 halftime lead.
Lafayette (3-2) was led by Joe McCourt, who rushed for 101 yards
-- the 18th 100-yard rushing game of his career -- and scored one
touchdown and caught a touchdown pass from Brad Maurer.
After a touchdown run by Dawson and a missed extra-point
attempt, Lafayette's Brandon Stanford scored on a 19-yard run to
give the Leopards a 7-6 lead.
But Fitzpatrick scored on a 4-yard run to open the second
quarter and completed a 2-point conversion attempt to Cory Mazza.
Fitzpatrick then hooked up with Mazza for a 61-yard touchdown pass
a little over two minutes later to give the Crimson a 21-7 lead.
Mazza finished with four catches for 112 yards and Matt Schindel
capped the scoring with a 31-yard field goal for Harvard.
