Princeton beats Harvard 51-48 in 3OT

Associated Press

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Roman Wilson scored a pair of touchdowns in triple overtime to help Princeton beat Harvard 51-48 in an Ivy League conference game on Saturday.

Wilson had nine catches for 76 yards. Quinn Epperly threw for 321 yards and six touchdowns. Epperly also led the Tigers (5-1, 3-0 Ivy) in rushing with 86 yards on 19 carries.

With a 35-28 Princeton lead and just under 3 minutes left in regulation, Harvard's Connor Hempel hit Tyler Ott in the end zone from 10 yards out to tie the game at 35 and send the game into the first of three overtimes.

The Crimson (5-1, 2-1) scored first in OT on another Hempel to Ott touchdown pass. Princeton answered on its next possession with a 9-yard TD rush by Wilson.

With Harvard holding a 48-45 lead, Epperly hit Wilson on a 6-yard pass for a touchdown and the Princeton victory.
