Harvard 32, Cornell 15

ITHACA, N.Y. (AP) -- Chris Pizzotti threw three touchdown passes, including a 51-yard score to Matt Luft in the third quarter to lead Harvard to a 32-15 win over Cornell on Saturday.

Pizzottii was 16-of-27 for 284 yards, with two interceptions, and the Crimson never trailed. Cheng Ho carried 19 times for 67 yards and scored once. Cory Mazza caught 6 passes for 138 yards.

Harvard (2-2, 2-0 Ivy League) took the lead in the first quarter on Pizzotti's 33-yard pass to Mazza, capping an 89-yard drive. Mazza caught a 26-yard pass from Pizzotti late in the second quarter to complete another drive. Mike Cook scored a minute later on a 9-yard run to put Harvard up 19-0.

The extra point attempt was blocked, and Colin Nash returned it for Cornell's first score. The Big Red (2-2, 0-2) added a pair of touchdowns before the half on Bryan Walters' 6-yard reception from Nathan Ford and Peter Zell's 27-yard field goal.

Harvard led 19-12 at halftime, but Zell kicked a 38-yard field goal for Cornell early in the third quarter to close the gap. Then Pizzotti connected with Luft, and the Crimson scored again in the fourth quarter on Ho's 3-yard run.

Ford was 27-of-47 passing for 238 yards and intercepted three times.
