The Dartmouth football team earned its second Ivy League win of the season when it posted 483 yards of total offense and beat Cornell 20-17 in double overtime in Hanover on November 7. First-year quarterback Greg Patton ’13, of College Park, Ga., playing in his first varsity game, scored both touchdowns and broke Dartmouth’s two-week-old single-game rushing record by running for 243 yards. It was just one yard more than Nick Schwieger ’12 of Norton, Mass., who rushed for 242 yards during the Big Green’s 28-6 Homecoming victory over Columbia. (Schwieger is now sidelined with a broken hand.) Al Rosier ’91 held the previous record of 229 yards.
