Bending but not breaking

And once again, the Bulldog defense allows an offense to march down the field, but keeps the opposition out of the end zone. The 15-play, 87-yard drive lasted about seven minutes but only resulted in a 22-yard field goal. The kick cuts the Yale lead to 7-6 with just over eight minutes remaining in the first half.

If the Bulldogs want pull off a win, the offense needs to puts points on the board. Unlike Penn last week, the Columbia offense has proven that it can move the ball down the field effectively. This game cannot be won with seven points.
