NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Kurt Rawlings ran for a touchdown and threw for another and Yale's defense stymied Columbia 23-6 on Saturday, ending the Lions' seven-game winning streak, its longest since 1935.
Rawlings scored on a 1-yard run to make it 13-0 at the half and iced it for the Bulldogs (6-1, 3-1) with a 9-yard toss to Michael Siragusa Jr. in the third.
Columbia (6-1, 3-1), which was looking to go 7-0 for the first time since 1932, came in averaging 400 yards a game but was limited to 206 yards and had two turnovers. Columbia's 6-0 start had equaled the 1996 team, which was the squad to post a winning record for the Lions.
Anders Hill, who entered completing 66 percent of his passes for 327 yards a game, was just 15 of 35 for 175 yards with two interceptions for the Lions. Hill's 1-yard run accounted for the Lions' only score late in the third. The Lions, averaging 123 yards on the ground, netted just 31 yards on 24 attempts. Ryan Gilbert had a career high 18 tackles, 13 solo, for Columbia.
Zane Dudek rushed for 173 yards on 25 carries as Yale piled up 251 yards on the ground.
