PHILADELPHIA – Billy Ragone rushed for three touchdowns, including the 1-yard game-winner in overtime, and passed for another to lead Pennsylvania to a 35-28 win over Dartmouth in both teams' Ivy League opener on Saturday.
Ragone's 22-yard pass to David Wurst set up his scoring run. Dartmouth gained only 7 yards on its possession, which included three incomplete passes, as the Quakers won their ninth straight Ivy League game.
In the first quarter, Ragone, who entered the game with one career rushing TD, had scoring runs of 14 and 6 yards. He threw a 3-yard pass to Luke DeLuca to put Penn (2-1, 1-0) ahead 28-14 with 7:29 left in the third quarter.
The Big Green (2-1, 0-1) tied the game on two straight third-quarter TD passes by Conner Kempe.
Dartmouth, which opened the season 2-0 for the first time in 13 years, lost its third straight to Penn and 12th of the past 13 in the series.
