The football team strung together three scoring drives in the second quarter to put a dent in one of the Ivy League’s top defenses, but No. 23 Dartmouth pulled away with a pair of 1-yard rushing touchdowns by Jared Gerbino after the half for a 35-24 victory on Saturday afternoon at Schoellkopf Field. The Big Green improved to 8-1 (5-1 Ivy) with the victory, while the Big Red fell to 3-6 (2-4 Ivy).
On Senior Day, Dalton Banks was 28-for-40 passing for 263 yards and two touchdowns for the Big Red, with Owen Peters, Harold Coles and Lars Pederson hauling in five receptions apiece. Banks also led Cornell with 58 yards rushing, and Coles added 45 on nine carries. The 24 points by Cornell (3-6, 2-4 Ivy League) were the most surrendered this season by Dartmouth (8-1, 5-1).
