Associated Press

BOSTON (AP) -- Chris Pizzotti passed for 232 yards and two touchdowns as Harvard beat Penn 23-7 on Saturday to set up a showdown with archrival Yale next weekend for the Ivy League championship.

The Crimson and the Bulldogs, who beat Princeton 27-6 on Saturday, are both 6-0 in the league going into The Game for the first time since 1968.

Pizzotti's 20-yard pass to Corey Mazza with 43 seconds remaining in the first half gave the Crimson (7-2, 6-0) a 7-0 halftime lead. It was Mazza's 28th career touchdown reception, tying Harvard's record.

The Crimson went up 14-0 early in the second quarter when Pizzotti threw a 30-yard scoring pass to Matt Luft, who had four catches for 95 yards. Patrick Long's 30-yard field goal on Harvard's next possession made it 17-0.

Penn (3-6, 2-4) scored when Michael DiMaggio, who gained 71 yards on 20 carries, ran in from two yards out with 3:31 remaining in the third quarter.

Harvard's Cheng Ho answered with 5:58 to play with a 20-yard touchdown run. Ho rushed for 79 yards on 12 carries.

Penn quarterbacks Bryan Walker and Brendan McNally (4-of-8) combined for just 125 passing yards.
