Associated Press

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) -- Yale set an Ivy League offensive benchmark Saturday in a 50-10 rout of Dartmouth, its most lopsided win against the Big Green in 40 years.

The Bulldogs (4-0, 2-0), which routed Cornell 51-12 two weeks ago, became the first team in the league's 51-year history to score at least 50 points twice in a season against fellow Ivy competitors.

Junior tailback Mike McLeod led Yale with 155 yards and a touchdown Saturday, already his 13th this season.

The Bulldogs rushed for 304 total yards, with 75 and a touchdown from backup tailback Ricardo Galvez and 54 yards and a touchdown from quarterback Matt Polhemus.

Dartmouth totaled just 140 yards offensively and turned the ball over four times. Yale's defense recorded five sacks, led by two from tackle Jared Hamilton. Milan Williams had 67 yards on 14 carries for Dartmouth.

"I really like the way we're playing ... how physical we've been on both sides of the ball," Yale football coach Jack Siedlecki said. "We played three great football games in a row."

Yale put the game away in the first quarter as it led 19-0 thanks to a 30-yard field goal from Alan Kimball, a 21-yard touchdown run by Polhemus, and a 10-yard touchdown reception by John Sheffield from Polhemus.

The Bulldogs and Big Green traded field goals in the second quarter as Yale led 22-3 at the half.
