Associated Press

PRINCETON, N.J. -- Gino Gordon carried 20 times for 204 yards and Treavor Scales 16 times for 134 yards as Harvard used its ground game to defeat Princeton 45-28 on Saturday.

Gordon's 26-yard touchdown run tied the game 7-7 in the first quarter and Scales' 46-yard score in the second put the Crimson (4-2, 2-1 Ivy League) ahead 14-7.

After going three-and-out on three straight pass plays on its first possession, Harvard gained 394 rushing yards.

Collier Winters, who was injured for Harvard's first five games, started the second half and threw two touchdown passes.

Andrew Kerr had two touchdown catches for the Tigers (1-5, 0-3), the first on a 22-yarder from tight end Harry Flaherty. The other was thrown by Andrew Dixon, who was 20-for-29 for 195 yards but was intercepted twice.

Princeton leads the venerable series 53-43-7 but Harvard has won 13 of the past 15.
