Penn 13, Dartmouth 11
HANOVER, N.H. (AP) _ Andy Glockner kicked two field goals, and Pennsylvania stopped Dartmouth twice in the final minute Saturday, holding on for a 13-11 win, its 14th straight.
Leading 13-9 with one minute remaining, Penn stopped Pete Oberle on fourth- and-1. But on fourth down of the ensuing possession, Pennsylvania quarterback Mark DeRossa ran out the back of the end zone for a safety with six seconds remaining.
After Penn (2-0, 1-0 Ivy League) punted, Dartmouth’s Ren Riley hit Matt Puryear on a 24-yard pass near midfield, but Puryear was unable to get out of bounds and time expired for Dartmouth (0-2, 0-1).
Oberle had 109 yards on 32 carries.
Penn, the reigning league champion, led 10-0 at halftime. Glockner kicked a 33-yard field goal in the first period, and DeRossa hit Mark Fabish on a 53- yard scoring pass in the second quarter.
Fabish had the Dartmouth defender beaten by several steps on the play and ran the final 30 yards into the end zone untouched.
Dartmouth got a 20-yard field goal from Jeff Willison in the third quarter. In the fourth, Riley rolled left on third down and flipped the ball over the Penn defense to Brian Radicks, who was all alone at the back of the end zone. Willison’s extra point was blocked.
Midway through the final quarter, Dartmouth took over after a Penn punt and marched downfield. A pass interference play gave the Big Green a first down at the 10, but Penn stopped Oberle at the goal line.
