CAMBRIDGE, MA — Against a University of Pennsylvania defense, which yielded three rushing touchdowns prior to Saturday’s clash against Harvard University, the Crimson challenged the Quakers front seven, and recorded three scores on the ground en route to a 37-20 victory.
Fifth-year senior quarterback Collier Winters, junior running back Treavor Scales and freshman Zach Boden all registered scores before the game concluded, as well as combined for 224 yards on the ground.
“Having [both Zach and Treavor] takes a lot of pressure off me, and what’s been probably the best part of our offense that we weren’t sure about coming into the season has been our offensive line, and much different from last year, they took care of business on the offensive line [by giving] us holes and time to throw,” said Winters.
“Their offensive line and tight ends blocked real well,” said Penn’s head coach Al Bagnoli. “It was a combination of a good back behind good push by the o-line, and tight ends, and they were able to establish some consistency in the run game.”
Through nine games this season, Harvard has recorded 19 rushing touchdowns, as well as compiled 1,649 yards on the ground.
