NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Kurt Rawlings threw for 316 yards and two touchdowns and Yale cruised to a 32-0 victory over Holy Cross on Saturday.
Yale (4-1) bounced back from a 28-27 loss to Dartmouth on Oct. 7 in an Ivy League opener, a game in which it led 21-0 in the second quarter.
The Bulldogs built another big first-half lead this week. Rawlings threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Michael Siragusa Jr., and the two connected on a 33-yarder just before halftime to make it 25-0. Zane Dudek ran for a 21-yard touchdown, and Matthew Oplinger sacked quarterback Peter Pujals for a first-half Yale safety.
Dudek ran for a 22-yard score to open the second half.
Holy Cross (2-5) had just one drive reach Yale territory in the second half. The 14-play, 78-yard drive stalled on a missed 36-yard field goal attempt.
