Football Prevails in Back-and-Forth with Colgate

Football staved off the Colgate Raiders at Andy Kerr Stadium and came away with a 34-31 win over their longtime rival on the road. It was a game chock full of running and gunning, and the Red fought tooth and nail down to the bitter end. 

Sophomore quarterback Jameson Wang had his best game of the season, putting up big numbers on the ground and in the air. Wang’s success was largely enabled by a diligent offensive line providing ample protection, allowing the senior quarterback to scramble and tuck at will. Wang ran 15 times for 98 yards and two touchdowns. 

Wang’s effective scrambling opened up opportunities for receivers down field. He posted his best passing performance of the season, going 18-27 for 284 yards with a touchdown and an interception.

Field Hockey Falls in Pair of Big Ten Matchups

Cornell began its weekend with a matchup against No. 6 Penn State (6-1) on Saturday, before taking on No. 7 Michigan (4-3) on Sunday. Both games were hard fought, but the weekend ended in two scoreless losses for the Red.

Don’t expect Cornell to end its 32-year Ivy League title drought this season. The Red is dangerously thin on the offensive line and is resting its fate on mostly inexperienced players.
