NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Trocon Davis picked off a pass at the Princeton goal line and returned it 100 yards to break a tie 61 seconds before halftime and the Tigers went on to a 29-7 Ivy League victory Saturday.
Yale had begun a drive at the 39-yard line of Princeton (5-4, 3-2) after an interception of its own and reached the 5. Davis, a junior, intercepted running back Mordecai Cargill's pass for his first career pick and returned it the length of the field for a 14-7 lead.
The return matched James Anderson's 100-yard interception return against Cornell in 1984 as the longest in Princeton history.
The Tigers tacked on a touchdown and a 2-point conversion on the opening possession of the third quarter, driving 65 yards in nine plays with Connor Michelsen completing four passes and Quinn Epperly running for the final yard.
