PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Billy Ragone passed for three touchdowns and a career-high 254 yards and Pennsylvania dominated Princeton 37-9 on Saturday to win its fifth straight game in the series.

Ragone threw a 10-yard scoring pass to Joe Holder in the first half and had second-half TDs of 54 and 23 yards to Ryan Mitchell.

The Quakers (5-3, 4-1 Ivy League) needed more time to pull away than they did last year, when they took a 28-0 lead en route to a 52-10 victory.

The Tigers (1-7, 1-4) blocked two punts in the first quarter, taking possession at the 11-yard line on both occasions, but settled for two field goals.

After Jeff Jack’s 3-yard touchdown gave Penn a 14-6 lead, Patrick Jacob kicked his third field goal for Princeton, a 44-yarder with 2:16 to go before halftime. The Tigers would not score again.

Chuck Dibilio led Princeton with 130 yards on 29 carries.
