Penn beats Columbia 31-7 for Ivy League record

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Alek Torgersen passed for one touchdown and ran for another as Pennsylvania set an Ivy League record with a 31-7 win over Columbia on Saturday.

The loss for the Lions (0-5, 0-2) was their 16th in a row overall and 18th straight to the Quakers (1-4, 1-1), the longest winning streak for one opponent over the other in league history.

Columbia had a lead for the third straight game, going 81 yards on the opening drive, capped by Trevor McDonagh’s 6-yard strike to Zach Dansby. But Penn’s Eric Fiore had a 12-yard TD run with 4 minutes left in the first quarter to tie the game.

Then Penn, which finished with 490 yards to 286 for the Lions, took the lead on Torgersen’s 7-yard pass to Ryan Kelly late in the second quarter.

Torgersen and Adam Strouss had short scoring runs in the third quarter for the Quakers.
