Epperly leads Princeton to 53-7 win over Columbia

Associated Press

PRINCETON, N.J. -- Quinn Epperly scored six touchdowns and amassed 326 total yards to lead Princeton to a 53-7 win over Columbia Saturday in the Ivy League opener for both schools.

Epperly, who garnered four of those touchdowns through the air, threw for a total of 272 yards, completing 16 of 25 attempts. He also rushed for 54 yards on 11 carries. Roman Wilson pulled in nine of Epperly's passes for 144 yards and three touchdowns.

The Tigers (2-1, 1-0 Ivy League) started slow but that quickly changed in the second quarter as Epperly rushed for one touchdown and threw for three more to give Princeton a 36-7 halftime advantage.

Columbia (0-3, 0-1) scored when Kelly Hilinski threw a 70-yard touchdown pass to hit Scooter Hollis in the second quarter. The Lions have been outscored 142-28 this season and have lost 24 of their last 28 games overall. They've been outscored 86-13 by Princeton in their last two meetings.

The Princeton defense, led by Garrit Leicht with six tackles, held the Lions to 136 total yards.
