HANOVER, N.H. (AP) — Nick Howard scored on a 7-yard run in overtime and Dartmouth defeated Yale 24-17 in a matchup of reigning Ivy League co-champions on Saturday.
Dartmouth’s Connor Davis tied the game at 17, connecting on a 32-yard field goal with 17 seconds left in the fourth quarter, then the Big Green (4-0, 2-0 Ivy) took the ball first in overtime. Howard lined up in a wildcat formation, took the snap, headed to the right and dragged a tackler the last three yards into the end zone.
The Bulldogs (2-2, 1-1) were stopped on a fourth-and-1 pass attempt on their overtime possession.
Yale trailed 14-3 in the second quarter but eventually took the lead 17-14 on a 5-yard pass from Griffin O’Connor to Mason Tipton with 2:37 remaining in the fourth quarter.
