Columbia 9, Dartmouth 6

NEW YORK (AP) -- Nick Rudd's third field goal of the game broke a tie in the fourth quarter, and Columbia snapped its six-game losing streak with a 9-6 win over Dartmouth on Saturday.

Tad Crawford intercepted a pass by Dartmouth's Charlie Rittgers to set up Rudd's 19-yarder with 13:15 remaining.

Dartmouth (0-6, 0-3 Ivy League) was unable to threaten after Rudd's kick, getting no closer than the Lions 41 in the game's final minute.

It was the first win for Columbia (1-5, 1-2) since Nov. 11, 2003, when the Lions beat Cornell 34-21. They lost their final game against Brown before opening this season 0-5.

Columbia led 6-0 at halftime, before Clayton Smith intercepted a pass by Lions quarterback Jeff Otis and returned it to the Lions 27. Five plays later, Rittgers scored from a yard out to tie the score. Erik Hinterbichler missed the extra-point try.

Rudd kicked field goals from 39 and 31 yards in the first half, and missed from 36 and 40 yards. Dartmouth's Tyler Lavin missed tries from 46, 48 and 41 yards out.

Otis was 24-of-39 for 269 yards while Rittgers was 19-for-39 for 147 yards and two interceptions.
