Cornell opens season with win at Marist

Marist was limited to two rushing yards, including none in five cracks inside the 1 yard line with goal to go, and Cornell opened its 2019 season with a defensive-minded 21-7 victory at Tenney Stadium. The Big Red improved to 1-0 and the Red Foxes fell to 1-2 as a result.

The Big Red defense held Marist to 220 yardsof offense and eight first downs while controlling the ball for 40:06 as Cornell won its first season opener since 2016 and by its largest margin since topping Bucknell 45-13 – exactly six years to the date in head coach David Archer’s coaching debut.
