NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Sophomore quarterback Brook Hart connected with Jordan Forney for a pair of touchdown passes and Yale kept its slim Ivy League title hopes alive with a 14-0 win over Princeton on Saturday.
It was the Bulldogs' first shutout against Princeton since a 26-0 win in 1937.
Yale's defense held Princeton to 96 yards rushing and 57 yards passing, forced four turnovers and allowed the Tigers past midfield only four times -- twice for just one play.
The Bulldogs (6-3, 4-2) got all the points they needed in the first half when tailback Mike McLeod, last year's Ivy League MVP, rushed for 70 of his game-high 138 yards.
Yale took advantage of the slick field conditions when Larry Abare recovered a Princeton fumble at the Tigers' 24 yard line on the second play of the game. Four plays later, Hart hit Forney on a 5-yard touchdown pass for a 7-0 lead.
Bobby Abare's interception and 11-yard return to the Princeton 17 yard line set up the Bulldogs' second touchdown, Hart's 12-yard pass to Forney for a 14-0 halftime lead.
The interception was the 10th of Abare's career, the most ever by a Yale linebacker.
Princeton's deepest penetration of the game ended at the Yale 34 yard line, where the Tigers (3-6, 2-4) were held on downs with 1:25 to play in the first half.
