HANOVER, N.H. (AP) -- Ryan Fitzpatrick threw a 20-yard touchdown to Brian Edwards and Matt Schindel kicked two field goals Saturday to lift unbeaten Harvard to a 13-12 victory over winless Dartmouth.

The Harvard defense stymied Dartmouth until the second half, when the Big Green scored twice, but couldn't convert after either touchdown.

Dartmouth (0-7, 0-4 Ivy League) pulled within 1 point when Dan Shula connected with Bob Murphy for a 12-yard TD pass with 2:15 left. The Big Green went for a two-point conversion, but Daniel Tanner broke up the pass from Shula to Murphy to keep the win for Harvard (7-0, 4-0).

Schindel's first field goal put the Crimson up 3-0 in the second period. His second, from 39 yards out early in the fourth, proved decisive. But he also missed one attempt and had another blocked.

Harvard went 47 yards in three plays after Schindel's first three-pointer, ending with Fitzpatrick's TD pass to Edwards.

Dartmouth held Clifton Dawson, who was averaging 145 yards a game, to 69 yards. But Fitzpatrick completed 25-of-41 for 300 yards.

The loss marked the first time Dartmouth, which has played football since 1881, lost seven in a row in a season.
