WORCESTER, Mass. -- Paul Stanton rushed for a 17-yard game-winning touchdown to help Harvard edge Holy Cross 41-35 in a triple-overtime thriller Saturday.
The teams exchanged touchdowns in the first two overtimes. Mike Fess caught his second score of the day from Peter Pujals before Harvard's Conner Hempel responded with a touchdown pass to Tyler Ott. Stanton scored from one yard out on the next series, but the Crusaders (2-4) answered with a 5-yard touchdown by Kalif Raymond.
The Crimson (3-0) got the ball after a missed field goal and scored three plays later as Stanton ran around the left tackle and up the middle for the game-winner.
Pujals finished with 345 yards and four touchdowns, with one of those coming on a 20-yard connection to Jon Smith for a 21-14 lead late in regulation.
Hempel orchestrated an 84-yard Harvard rally before finding Cameron Brate for a 10-yard score to force overtime.
