Cornell holds off Princeton 21-19

Oct 30, 2010 - 8:32 PM ITHACA, N.Y. (AP) -- Emani Fenton broke up a two-point conversion pass and then intercepted a pass in the end zone with 23 seconds remaining to seal Cornell's 21-19 win over Princeton on Saturday.

Jeff Mathews passed for 243 yards and two touchdowns as the Big Red (2-5, 1-3 Ivy League) snapped a three-game losing streak.

Cornell led 21-6 before Princeton (1-6, 0-4) scored two touchdowns in the final 8:04. Brian Mills rushed for a 2-yard TD to cap an 87-yard drive, then just 2:06 later, quarterback Andrew Dixon threw his second TD pass to Trey Peacock, a 92-yarder. Fenton then broke up the two-point attempt.

Princeton drove 73 yards to the Cornell 24 before Fenton picked off Dixon's pass.

The series has been decided by a touchdown or less in its last seven games.

Grant Gellatly rushed for 97 yards on 22 carries for Cornell.

The Big Red also scored off a Dixon sack at the 2.
