Football Weekend Wrap-Up - October 27
Columbia 26, Yale 22
NEW YORK -- The last time Columbia defeated Yale in football, the current seniors on the Columbia football team were 10 years old. But Patricia and Shepard Alexander Head Coach of Football has said since his initial press conference last December, this Columbia football team would leave the past behind. While rebuilding is a process, the team showed fight, toughness and grit, shedding the past and defeating Yale for the first time since 2001, 26-22, on Saturday at Robert K. Kraft Field.

ITHACA, N.Y. -- John Wells was able to walk off the field a hero. Wells, who earlier in the day had missed both a field goal and an extra-point kick that looked like it might be the difference in the game late into the fourth quarter, drilled a 23-yard attempt with 50 seconds left in the game to give Cornell a 37-35 shootout victory over Princeton on Saturday afternoon at Schoellkopf Field.
