On a day when Princeton honored 1951 Heisman Trophy winner Dick Kazmaier, Tigers quarterback Quinn Epperly came through with perhaps the best performance in school history.
Epperly set an NCAA Division I record by completing his first 29 passes in a 53-20 win over Cornell on Saturday. Epperly finished 32 of 35 for 325 yards passing and three touchdowns and added three TDs rushing.
Though Epperly won't snap the league's 62-year Heisman drought, his numbers are nonetheless staggering. He has 32 touchdowns — 18 passing and 14 rushing — while completing 75 percent of his passes.
The Tigers moved to 6-1 and took sole possession of first place in the Ivy League heading into next week's game at defending conference champion Penn.
