Hosch tossed for a career-high 437 yards, connecting on 29-of-40 passes and two touchdown strikes in Harvard's 42-7 triumph over Princeton. The senior's 437 yards through the air was the most for a Harvard quarterback at home and was the third most overall. The Sugar Hill, Georgia native threw for 270 yards in the first half alone, guiding Harvard to win its 20th-straight game, including a program record 14th-straight Ivy League contest and 10th-consecutive home game.

Cote accounted for all six scores in Curry's dominant 42-14 win over Coast Guard, tossing four touchdown passes while adding a pair of scores on the ground to down the Bears, who were previously unbeaten in New England Football Conference play and tied for first place in the conference standings. In just his second-career start, the freshman was 24-of-35 through the air, tossing for 351 yards, while rushing seven times for 45 yards, totaling 396 of the Colonels 533 yards of total offense. The Bedford, New Hampshire native provided the bulk of his damage in the second quarter, scoring a pair of touchdowns through the air and another two on the ground to give Curry a 28-0 lead as it cruised to victory.
