Yale 17, Brown 7

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) -- Yale junior tailback Mike McLeod rushed for 185 yards on 32 carries Saturday, breaking team records and leading the Bulldogs to a 17-7 win over Brown.

McLeod broke both the single-season and career rushing records for the Bulldogs, who improved to 8-0 for the first time since 1981 and are now 5-0 in Ivy League play.

Brown dropped to 3-5, 2-3.

McLeod has now tallied 3,515 yards, breaking Robert Carr's career 3,393-yard mark with a 15-yard gain with 5:21 left in the first quarter.

McLeod already owns Yale's single-season and career touchdown records. He added another honor Saturday when he reached the 1,462-yard mark with a third-quarter run, breaking Rich Diana's single-season record of 1,442 set in 1981.

Sophomore Jordan Farrell put Yale ahead 10-7 with a 30-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. Farrell rushed for 78 yards on 18 second-half carries, including six during a drive that set up McLeod's 22nd touchdown of the year.

His score from 2 yards out with 6:49 left to play gave Yale a 17-7 lead.

McLeod, who has been playing with a broken bone in his right big toe, carried the ball just seven times in the second half. He has rushed for a touchdown in 17 straight games -- an Ivy League record -- and has 100 or more rushing yards in all eight games this season.

Quarterback Matt Polhemus added 69 yards rushing for the Bulldogs, who as a team ran for 335 yards and possessed the ball for 41 minutes, 13 seconds.

Brown took a 7-3 lead on a 43-yard touchdown pass from Michael Dougherty to Buddy Farnham with 11:39 left in the first half. Yale intercepted Dougherty twice in the second half.
