Harvard 24, Lafayette 7

BOSTON (AP) -- Chris Pizzotti threw a pair of touchdowns and Clifton Dawson scored to tie the Ivy League record for career rushing touchdowns as Harvard beat Lafayette, 24-7, on Saturday.

Dawson finished with 144 yards rushing, while Pizzotti was 17 of 40 for 210 yards and one interception for Harvard (5-0).

Lafayette (2-4) took a 7-0 lead at 8:09 of the first quarter when Brad Maurer (20 of 34, 157 yards) threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Jonathan Hurt.

But Lafayette turned the ball over on four consecutive possessions (three interceptions, fumble), leading to 24 unanswered points by Harvard.

Harvard's first score came when Pizzotti completed a 65-yard scoring drive with a 3-yard touchdown pass to Matt Farbotko. Harvard took the lead for good at 10:21 of the second quarter on Pizzotti's 19-yard touchdown pass to Corey Mazza.

Matt Schindel's 20-yard field goal at 12:46 of the third quarter increased the Harvard lead to 17-7. It was Schindel's 27th career field goal, tying him with Jim Villanueva for most field goals in school history.

Dawson finished the scoring with a 10-yard touchdown run with 3:44 left in the third quarter. The score tied him with Nick Hartigan of Brown for most rushing touchdowns in Ivy League history at 52.
