Lehigh rallies in second half 29-28 over Princeton

Associated Press

PRINCETON, N.J. -- Brandon Bialkowski threw for 430 yards and engineered four second-half scoring drives in Lehigh's 29-28 comeback victory over Princeton on Saturday night.

After trailing 22-3 at half, Lehigh (3-0) took the lead early in the fourth quarter on a Bialkowski pass to Dylan Colgate to go ahead 23-22. Princeton answered with Connor Michelsen's 9-yard pass to Di Andre Atwater which put the Tigers up 28-23 after a missed two-point conversion.

Lehigh then scored its game-winning touchdown on Sean Farrell's 1-yard run with 2:45 left in the game.

Lehigh has needed to rally from behind in each of its three victories this season.

Princeton (0-1) succeeded early as a result of up-tempo play-calling and unique offensive sets. In some formations, the Tigers had three quarterbacks on the field. Co-quarterback Quinn Epperly was effective when he lined up next to Michelsen as a threat to run, pass or catch.
