Senior cornerback Collin Bibb’s leaping interception in the end zone with 33 seconds left sealed a wild 24-21 win for the Yale football team Saturday afternoon at Georgetown. The Bulldogs overcame five turnovers and 11 penalties en route to earning a win in the debut of Tony Reno as Yale’s Joel E. Smilow ’54 Head Coach of Football. They were led offensively by a freshman quarterback -- Eric Williams, who threw for 250 yards -- and a pair of running backs, senior Mordecai Cargill and freshman Tyler Varga, who combined for 169 yards on 37 carries. Williams and junior wide receiver Cameron Sandquist also combined for the longest play from scrimmage in Yale history, a 98-yard touchdown in the second quarter that helped turn the game in Yale’s favor.
