ITHACA, N.Y. -- Jeff Mathews shook off two early interceptions and threw two late touchdowns as Cornell rallied to beat Bucknell 24-13 on Saturday night.

Trailing 13-10 late in the third quarter, Mathews threw a 64-yard strike to Shane Savage to give Cornell a 17-13 lead. Mathews finished with 322 yards on 15-of-28 passing as his touchdown sealed the win for the Big Red.

Savage caught four passes for 99 yards.

Bucknell (2-1) had a chance to come back, but Cornell's defense stuffed Brandon Wesley on fourth-and-3 in late in the fourth quarter.

On the next possession for Cornell (1-0), Mathews connected with Brad Greenway on an 84-yard pass to extend the lead to 11 and put the game out of reach.

Bucknell's Brandon Wesley threw for 267 yards on 22-of-35 passing, and Victor Walker caught five passes for 108 yards for the Bison.
