Yale: Opportunistic Princeton Tops Yale, 29-7
11-10-2012 12:00 AM
The Princeton football team was admittedly caught by surprise when the Yale offense, already without its top three quarterbacks, came out without sophomore starting tailback Tyler Varga and managed to put together an early touchdown drive Saturday afternoon at the Yale Bowl, Class of 1954 Field. But the Tigers adjusted, holding the Bulldogs scoreless for the final three quarters as two Yale drives ended with fumbles deep in Princeton territory. And aided by a 100-yard interception return for a touchdown by cornerback Trocon Davis that broke a 7-7 tie late in the second quarter, Princeton was able to score the final 29 points of the game to come away with a 29-7 win.
