Colgate trips up Cornell in home opener

Junior quarterback Dalton Banks passed for 239 yards and the football team had more total offense than Colgate on Saturday, but the visitors’ defense came up with four interceptions and nine sacks to power the Raiders to a 21-7 victory at Schoellkopf Field.

Banks accounted for the day’s lone touchdown from Cornell (0-3) on a 1-yard keeper. He set up the play with a completion to senior tight end Hayes Nolte on a second-and-24, and the extra point after the score cut the Colgate (2-3) lead in half with 1:25 to play in the third quarter.
