NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Alex Thomas rushed for 130 yards and a touchdown for Yale and the Bulldogs held Dartmouth in check in a 30-0 win on Saturday.
The Bulldogs totaled 480 yards of offense, while limiting the Big Green (1-3, 0-2 Ivy League) to just 178.
Yale earned the win by stopping the Dartmouth running game, which had been led by Nick Schwieger, who rushed for at least 100 yards in each of his previous four games. But he managed just 39 yards on 16 carries against the Bulldogs.
Mordecai Cargill added 83 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries for the Bulldogs (3-1, 2-0), who finished with 269 yards rushing. It was Yale's ninth straight win against Dartmouth.
The Big Green -- who lost their third straight and finished with just 55 yards on the ground -- were shutout for the first time since falling 28-0 against Harvard on Oct. 28, 2006.
