Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) -- Mike McLeod scored three second-half touchdowns to keep Yale undefeated with a 28-7 victory over Columbia on Saturday.

McLeod finished with 133 yards rushing on 35 carries, scoring on runs of 8 and 15 yards in the third quarter and another of 8 yards in the fourth quarter after a scoreless first half.

Yale (7-0, 4-0 Ivy League) won its eighth game in a row, and sixth straight over Columbia. The Lions (1-6, 0-4) lost five straight.

Sophomore Jordan Farrell added the final touchdown on an 8-yard run midway through the fourth quarter.

Craig Hormann threw an 8-yard touchdown pass to Austin Knowlin with 3:46 left for the Lions' only score.

Matt Polhemus was 9-for-21 passing for 139 yards for the Bulldogs, while Hormann completed 17 of 30 for 153 yards for the Lions.

A heavy rain marred the first half during which the teams traded eight turnovers, including five fumbles. Each added a turnover in the second half, boosting the game total to 10.

Columbia had the only scoring opportunity in the opening half but Jon Rocholl's 39-yard field goal attempt with 5:52 remaining in the second quarter was wide left.

Yale had a 437-218 edge in total offense including 298-65 on the ground.
