LOVETTThe Princeton offense continued its assault on the school record books in a win over Lehigh that moved the nationally ranked Tigers to 4-0 overall.

Pulling the trigger and getting the ball to all the weapons the Tigers possess is veteran quarterback John Lovett.

The senior from Wantagh, N.Y. who is in his third season as a starting quarterback piled up nearly 400 yards of offense of his own on a day when Princeton set a single-game school record for total yards.

Lovett threw for 288 yards, rushed for a team-high 111 yards and accounted for four touchdowns to earn the Uplifting Athletes Rare Performance of the Week.

Lovett accounted for 399 of Princeton’s single-game school record 733 yards of total offense.

In four games Lovett has accounted for nearly 1,350 yards and a staggering 18 touchdowns as the leader of an offense that is averaging 607 yards and 53 points a game.

The 66 points scored against Lehigh matched the most points Princeton has scored in a game since the 1934 season opener when the Tigers drubbed Amherst 75-0. In 1950, Princeton also scored 66 in a victory over Williams.
