Rout makes Yale first to win 800

NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Yale became the first school to win 800 football games as Rashad Bartholomew scored three touchdowns and rushed for a career-high 201 yards in a 42-6 victory over Dayton on Saturday.

"We're part of history now," Bartholomew said. "It means a lot. We'll be able to look back and say we beat Michigan and everybody else."

The Bulldogs, in their opener, reached the milestone ahead of Michigan, which has 798 wins.

The game ball carrying every team members' name will be enshrined in the College Football Hall of Fame on Monday, Yale coach Jack Siedlecki said.

"That's a very special thing for these kids to have," Siedlecki said.

Yale played and won its first game Nov. 16, 1872, 3-0 against Columbia, with each team playing 20 players at a time.

Yale junior Peter Lee made his first start and threw for 193 yards and two touchdowns.

Yale also gained 355 yards on the ground against the Flyers. Bartholomew led the charge, slipping Dayton tacklers all afternoon. He scored from 25 yards to give Yale its opening touchdown with less than four minutes gone. He also had scores of 40 and 10 yards.

RECEIVING RECORD: Cos DeMatteo had six touchdown receptions to set a Division I-AA record as Chattanooga beat Mississippi Valley State 72-17. DeMatteo teamed with quarterback Chris Sanders on scoring plays of 61, 8, 57, 28, 23 and 4 yards to break the mark held by five players, including Jerry Rice, who did it twice at Mississippi Valley. The Division I-A record also is six, set by Tim Delaney of San Diego State against New Mexico State in 1969.

RUSHING MARK CHALLENGED: Grove City's R.J. Bowers rushed for 139 yards on 34 carries in a 27-7 loss to Wooster, leaving him 16 yards short of becoming the Division III career rushing leader. Bowers, who has 6,110 yards in four seasons, moved past Steve Tardif of Maine Maritime into second place behind Carey Bender of Coe, who gained 6,125 yards from 1991-94.

BAYLOR: Junior college transfer quarterback Greg Cicero fractured his left collarbone in the first quarter on a hard tackle by Minnesota's Karon Riley.

MIAMI: The school will begin selling individual tickets Monday to its game against Virginia Tech, noon Nov. 4 at the Orange Bowl. Tickets are $40 for reserved seats and $30 for general admission and are available at the ticket office at 5821 San Amaro Drive, Coral Gables. The office is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays.

NEBRASKA: One day after being found innocent of rape, linebacker Mark Vedral returned to practice. Coach Frank Solich said Vedral had been working out on his own, but he has to get into football shape. A jury acquitted Vedral on a charge of raping a 21-year-old woman while she slept in his home in May.

WAKE FOREST: Quarterback C.J. Leak was taken off on a stretcher after dislocating his left knee in the third quarter against Clemson. Leak was hospitalized for tests.
