Battling through the loss of freshman starting quarterback Eric Williams, the Yale football team nabbed its first Ivy League win of the season Saturday afternoon at the Yale Bowl, Class of 1954 Field, beating Penn 27-13. With Williams knocked out of the game on the second drive, senior Derek Russell and freshman Logan Scott both saw time at quarterback and moved the ball effectively, tossing one touchdown pass each. The Bulldogs also ran for 203 yards, including 96 on 26 carries by sophomore tailback Tyler Varga, en route to a season high in points. The Yale defense limited Penn to a 6-for-16 performance on third downs, and got a key interception from senior linebacker Brian Leffler.
