NEW YORK -- Alex Park drove Dartmouth 91 yards for a touchdown with 1:09 remaining as the Big Green edged Columbia 21-16 Saturday.
After an incompletion. Park completed three straight passes to Ryan McManus, ran for 13 yards himself, then hit McManus for a 15-yarder that put the Big Green (4-2, 2-1 Ivy League) at the 15 of the Lions (1-5, 0-3).
Park's 7-yard completion to Victor Williams, with roughing the passer tacked on, moved the ball to the 4 with 1:16 left. Following a Dartmouth procedure penalty, Park found Dean Bakes for the go-ahead score.
A Dartmouth celebration penalty and a kickoff out of bounds enabled Columbia to get the ball back at midfield, but Sean Brackett's fourth-down pass from the 40 was intercepted by Stephen Dazzo.
Columbia, which lost 24-20 to Pennsylvania last week on a touchdown in the final minute, clinched its 16th consecutive season without a winning record.
Since going 8-2 in 1996, the Lions have had losing records every season except 2006, when they were 5-5. Another loss would ensure their 38th losing season in 41 years.
Park completed 20 of 28 passes for 197 yards for Dartmouth.
