BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) - Kurt Rawlings threw for four touchdowns, Zane Dudek ran for two scores, and Yale opened its season with a 56-28 win over Lehigh on Saturday to take the Yank Townsend Trophy from the Mountain Hawks.

Rawlings hit Melvin Rouse II on a 37-yard TD pass on the Bulldogs’ opening drive, and later found him for a 31-yard TD pass in the third quarter to make it 34-21. Rawlings was 20 of 26 for 308 yards passing, with a 43-yard TD pass to Christopher Williams-Lopez and an 11-yarder to JP Shohfi.

The Bulldogs converted two turnovers into scores and broke the game open on Rawlings’ TD pass to Shohfi after Ryan Burke recovered Brad Mayes’ fumble on the Lehigh 25.
