Cornell goes on road to beat Bucknell 21-12

Oct 2, 2010 - 11:57 PM LEWISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- Cornell jumped out early and were able to hang on to defeat Bucknell 21-12 on Saturday night.

The Big Red (1-2) jumped out to a 14-0 lead after a 2-yard touchdown run from Nick Booker-Tandy and 14-yard scoring run from Luke Tasker, but a 21-yard field goal from Bucknell kicker Drew Orth with 14 seconds remaining in the first half cut into the deficit, 14-3.

Orth added a 39-yard field goal early in the second half to pull the Bison (0-4) within 14-6.

Quarterback Jeff Matthews then scored on a 1-yard run that capped an 11-play, 70-yard drive for Cornell to push the lead to 21-6.

A 14-yard touchdown run from Brandon Wesley just before the end of the third quarter kept Bucknell in the game, but a failed two-point conversion made the score 21-12.

Cornell notched the victory despite an interception from Matthews and losing three fumbles.
