RPI Beats Hartwick 39-38, Defense Stops PAT to Seal Victory

In a game that was marked by a number of record-breaking performances RPI Football beat Hartwick 39-38 to keep its NCAA playoff hopes alive. RPI Quarterback Dan Cole set a new school record for total offense in a game: 509 yards. This included completing 30 of 42 passes for 440 yards and five touchdowns, as well as 69 yards rushing.

According to D3football.com, "...the Engineers' point-after-touchdown unit came up with a last second, game-winning stop.... Hartwick... lined up to attempt a game-tying point-after kick but a Rensselaer surge forced Pincelli, the holder, to pick up the ball and throw it. His two-point conversion pass sailed over Hipsman's head and fell incomplete. A Hartwick onsides kick was unsuccessful and Rensselaer ran out the clock for the victory."
