Lafayette outlasts Colgate 56-49

The Leopards (8-1, 4-0 Patriot League) led 27-21 at halftime, but Colgate (8-2, 3-2) tied the score at 42 on Greg Sullivan's 32-yard touchdown pass to Gigi Cadet with 10:34 left in the game. Lafayette took a 56-42 lead as Curley threw two fourth-quarter touchdown passes.
