NEW YORK (AP) -- Chris Pizzotti passed for one touchdown and ran for another as Harvard defeated Columbia 27-12 on Saturday to remain in a tie for first place in the Ivy League.

Cheng Ho, who gained 119 yards on 24 carries, ran for two touchdowns for the Crimson (6-2, 5-0). He scored on a 9-yard run in the second quarter and a 1-yard run in the fourth.

Pizzotti completed 21 of 29 passes for 217 yards and threw 6 yards to Corey Mazza in the first quarter for the game's opening score. Pizzotti's rushing touchdown came on a fourth-and-inches dive 4:05 into the third quarter and gave the Crimson a commanding 20-6 lead.

Columbia (1-7, 0-5), which lost its sixth straight game, scored on a pair of first-half field goals by Jon Rocholl.

Craig Hormann was 21-of-44 for 274 yards for the Lions and threw 9 yards to Austin Knowlin with 5:33 left in the fourth quarter for Columbia's touchdown.

Harvard out-gained Columbia 400 to 269, beating the Lions for the fourth straight year.
