PHILADELPHIA -- Sophomore halfback Michael DiMaggio ran for a career-high 130 yards and also caught a touchdown pass in leading Penn to a 23-10 victory over Dartmouth in the Ivy League opener for both teams on Saturday.
Rob Irvin completed 22 of 39 passes for 270 yards for the Quakers (1-2, 1-0 Ivy League), and became the 10th Penn quarterback to pass for over 10,000 yards.
Dartmouth quarterback Alex Jenny was 20-for-41 for 160 yards for the Big Green (0-3, 0-1), which had only 191 yards total offense compared to Penn's 425.
Dartmouth took a 10-7 lead early in the third quarter when a 38-yard pass from Jenny to Tim McManus set up a 22-yard field goal by Foley Schmidt. Penn then mounted a six-play, 73-yard drive capped by Irvin's 9-yard pass to Tyler Fisher with eight minutes left in the third quarter.
A 43-yard pass from Irvin to Tyler Derham early in the fourth led to a 27-yard field goal by Andrew Samson, and DiMaggio's running then led to two more field goals by Samson to account for the final score.
The game was the 800th played at historic Franklin Field, the Quakers' home since 1895.
