NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) Matthew Sluka passed for 80 yards and rushed for 85 with two touchdowns, Derek Ng made a 47-yard field goal with 48 seconds left and Holy Cross beat Yale 20-17 on Saturday.
It was the first time Holy Cross has won at Yale since 1982.
Sluka completed 7-of-13 passes and he carried it 19 times for Holy Cross (2-1). Sluka's 1-yard scoring run gave the Crusaders their first lead at 17-14.
Yale's Jack Bosman made a 47-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter to tie it at 17. Ng's kick capped an eight-play, 18-yard drive that took four-plus minutes off the clock, and Walter Reynolds sealed it with an interception.
The Crusaders started the season with an FBS victory at UConn, 38-28, for their first Bowl Subdivision victory since 2002 - but were upended by Merrimack 35-21 last week in their home opener.
Griffin O'Connor threw for 234 yards and two touchdowns for Yale (0-1), which played for the first time since Nov. 23, 2019.
O'Connor connected with Jackson Hawes on a 19-yard touchdown for a 7-0 lead. Tight end JJ Howland was left wide open over the middle and raced for a 74-yard touchdown, breaking a tackle near the end zone for a 14-0 lead. Howland had three receptions for 102 yards.
