Former CAK QB Epperly sets NCAA passing record

PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) — Quinn Epperly amassed 401 total yards of offense and accounted for six touchdowns to help Princeton pull away from Cornell 53-20 Saturday.

Epperly, who was an efficient 32-of-35 with 325 yards, tossed three touchdowns and ran for another three. He rushed for 69 yards and even had a reception for seven yards. He completed 29 consecutive passes to start the game, setting an NCAA record. His first incompletion came in the third quarter.

The Tigers (6-1, 4-0 Ivy League) led early when Epperly hit Roman Wilson for a seven-yard touchdown.

The Big Red (1-6, 0-4) trimmed their deficit to 13-15 in the second quarter when Justin Harris returned a fumble two yards for a score. Princeton responded quickly as Epperly scored two rushing touchdowns in the second quarter.

Epperly continued the onslaught in the third quarter, finding Seth DeValve for a 12-yard score and connecting with Wilson on a 17-yarder.
