NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) -- Senior tailback Robert Carr rushed for 160 yards on 32 carries and scored two touchdowns to lead Yale to a 21-9 win over Princeton Saturday.

Carr scored on runs of 13 and 5 yards, the latter set up by a muffed punt. Greg Fields misplayed a Tyson Crawford punt with 14:14 left in the fourth quarter. After a scramble, the ball bounced free and was recovered by Matthew Baker at the Princeton 17-yard line. Carr scored three plays later, with 13:11 left.

The Yale defense held Princeton to three field goals, all by Derek Javarone. Princeton quarterback Matt Verbit completed 23 of 39 passes for 205 yards, becoming the 12th player in Ivy League history to pass the 5,000 yard mark with a total of 5,049.

Yale senior wide receiver Ralph Plumb caught three passes for 69 yards to break Eric Johnson's career receptions record. Plumb has 184.

Yale senior quarterback Alvin Cowan completed 10 of 20 passes for 143 yards, including an 18-yard touchdown pass to tight end Alex Faherty with 11:45 left in the first quarter.

Yale leads the series 69-48 with 10 ties.

Yale improved to 5-4; Princeton fell to 4-5.
