NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - Brad Mayes threw six touchdown passes and a program record 524 yards as Lehigh routed Yale 63-35 on Saturday.

Mayes was 33-of-46 passing, and joins four other Hawks’ quarterbacks with a school-best six TD passes. He surpassed Scott Semptimphelter’s 1992-mark of 480 yards passing.

Troy Pelletier had 13 receptions for 213 yards and three touchdowns. Gatlin Casey caught six passes for 169 yards and two scores. Trevor Socarras also had a touchdown catch.

Yale made it close before halftime. Tre Moore threw a 63-yard scoring strike to Christopher Williams-Lopez. The Bulldogs forced a punt on the Hawks’ next possession, and Jason Alessi returned it 82 yards into the end zone. Moore then capped a six-play drive with a 14-yard scoring run to pull Yale to 35-28 with about five minutes left in the second quarter.

It was Lehigh’s third straight win against an Ivy League opponent.
