Ragone Lifts Penn Past Dartmouth
HANOVER, N.H. (AP) — Billy Ragone orchestrated Pennsylvania’s final drive, which he finished with a 3-yard touchdown pass with 3 seconds left, leading the Quakers to a 22-20 win over Dartmouth on Saturday night.
After Penn (1-2, 1-0 Ivy League) took over on their own 11, Ragone went 9-for-9 with 65 yards passing and rushed for 13 more on the game-winning drive. He drove Penn 89 yards on the 13-play drive, which lasted 3:40.
Jason Rasmussen then picked off Dartmouth’s Conner Kempe with 4 seconds left to seal Penn’s 16th straight conference win. It’s currently the longest conference winning streak in the Football Championship Series.
Ragone, whose 3-yard TD pass to Ryan Calvert was his only of the game, was 15 of 25 for 160 yards.
Despite Ragone’s late proficiency through the air, Penn’s offensive advantage throughout the game came on the ground. Brandon Colavita finished with 102 of the Quakers’ 206 rushing yards.
