Penn Uses Fourth Quarter Rally To Beat Yale, 37-25
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Billy Ragone threw for three touchdowns and ran for one and Pennsylvania scored 27 points in the fourth quarter for a 37-25 win over Yale on Saturday.
The Quakers (4-2, 3-0 Ivy League) trailed 20-10 before outscoring the Bulldogs 27-5.
Ragone started the spree on a 16-yard pass to Luke Nawrocki with 13 minutes left. Penn’s Connor Loftus then recovered the onside kick, later leading to Ragone’s 11-yard TD run.
The Bulldogs (3-3, 2-1) tied it 23-23 on a field goal. However, Penn added two more TDs.
Ragone threw a 20-yard score to Ryan Calvert, and Joey Grosso recovered a fumble on the ensuing kickoff to give the Quakers the ball back. This time they scored on a 24-yard touchdown by Brandon Colavita, who finished with 156 yards on 18 carries.
Yale added a safety when Penn’s Scott Lopano was tackled in the end zone with 2:07 left.
