WASHINGTON -- Quinn Epperly scored four rushing touchdowns on his first four attempts as Princeton survived a furious first quarter to defeat Georgetown 50-22 on Saturday.
Epperly, the quarterback, is the first Princeton player in 20 years to score four times in a game. He finished with five rushing attempts for 69 yards. It was also the first time in 13 years the Tigers (1-1) have scored 50 points, going back to Oct. 14, 2000.
After falling behind 8-0 Georgetown (1-4) answered with a Nick Campanella TD from the 1, but the conversion pass was intercepted. Campanella scored twice, climbing to fifth in Georgetown career rushing TDs. The Hoyas went ahead 12-8 after Cameron Gamble returned a fumble 14 yards for a TD.
Epperly scored a second 1-yard TD as the Tigers regained the lead. He added his third TD run late in the first half and galloped 59 yards after halftime.
