NEW YORK -- Mike Roussos scored from 1-yard out to start overtime, Ben Mathiasmeier intercepted a pass on the next offensive play and Columbia beat Harvard 17-10 on Saturday to end a 15-game losing streak in the series.

Columbia went on an 11-play drive late in the fourth quarter but stalled at Harvard's 8 and Alex Felkins made a short field goal to tie it at 10. The Crimson went three-and-out and the Lions got it back at their 30 with 1:22 left but chose to run out the clock.
Brogan McPartland highlighted overtime with a 25-yard grab to Harvard's 1 on third-and-11.
Ty Lenhart completed 17 of 25 passes for 153 yards and one touchdown for Columbia. He also carried it 19 times for 50 yards.
