We always want to score more ..., 9 Nov 2014 [cached]
We always want to score more than we did tonight, but the times where you grind out tough physical games almost taste a little better and you are a little more proud everyone manned up and got done what they needed to do, quarterback Quinn Epperly said after the game.
Though Connor Michelsen received most of the snaps under center for the Tigers, Epperly was responsible for both of their touchdowns, scoring on a 1-yard dive in the first and hitting Connor Kelley for another 1-yard score in the second.
Epperly has had more dominant games in orange and black, but his performance Saturday was impressive considering that he has been in and out of the lineup with injuries all season.
These next two games are going to be a lot of how this season goes down in the books, Epperly said.

Male Athlete of the Year: Quinn Epperly
Junior quarterback Quinn Epperly added 86 rushing yards to his 321 passing yards and Princeton-record six touchdown passes.

Princeton had 321 total receiving yards off of Epperly's 37 completions, a Princeton record.
Quinn Epperly's one-yard rush in the third overtime period set up his game-winning lob to Roman Wilson. The play paralleled Epperly's fourth-quarter game-winning pass to Wilson against Harvard last year.

"Roman was actually my second option," Epperly explained.
Starring in that show was Epperly. With fellow junior quarterback Connor Michelsen sidelined with an injury, Epperly played every down at quarterback for the first time in his career.
Princeton's offense struck early with a pair of touchdowns, a short pass from Epperly to junior receiver Connor Kelley and an impressive leaping catch by senior tight end Des Smith.
Epperly led the offense down the field quickly and beat significant defensive pressure to hit junior receiver Matt Costello just inside the end zone for six.
The defenses held as both teams shot themselves in the feet with penalties - a touchdown run by sophomore tailback Di Andre Atwater was called back on a chop block, and Harvard jumped offsides repeatedly - until the Crimson knotted it up again at the end of the quarter.
Harvard had the momentum, especially after Epperly fumbled the ball away in the fourth quarter.
Less than a minute later, Epperly found DeValve in the end zone.
"I just ran around the end - Quinn blocked," Wilson said.
"Quinn gets all the credit for running, catching and throwing," Surace said.
Again, the Crimson defense was on the verge of winning the game in the second overtime, as Epperly had nothing going, and the Tigers had to settle for a 31-yard field goal by sophomore kicker Nolan Bieck.
"It's a really fun offense to play," Epperly said.

Yet, it happened recently for a local boy - Quinn Epperly - and the unusual coincidence sparked an arranged meeting at a football game in New Jersey last month.
Last fall Quinn's father, Jim, watching CNN on television saw the name Quinn Epperly featured for breaking an NCAA record by completing 29 consecutive passes, set in 2013 during a game against Cornell University.
"We were just really surprised because we thought we had chosen a name that was different or unique," said Quinn's mother, DeLynn. "When we saw another Quinn Epperly make national headlines, we were surprised."
(To avoid confusion, for the remainder of the article, local Quinn Epperly will be referred to as "Quinn", and Quinn Epperly, the Princeton quarterback, will be referred to as "Epperly.")
After seeing Epperly's name featured on television, DeLynn essentially prodded her son - who is a third-grader at Cridersville Elementary School - to reach out to the Princeton quarterback, so Quinn colored a picture and painted a football, sending those along with a school photo to Epperly at Princeton to congratulate him for setting the NCAA record.
In the mailing containing Quinn's things, his family requested Epperly to send something in return, such as an autographed photo or football.
For months the local family did not hear back from Epperly at Princeton.
Finally, in March of this year, a letter came back from the quarterback.
He explained how the mailing address DeLynn used was not the mailing address he normally collected mail from, apologizing for the bit of confusion.
Along with the letter, Epperly sent an autographed picture and a Princeton wristband.
Elsewhere in the letter from Epperly, he invited the locals to a future Princeton football game, saying he would ensure tickets would be saved for them.
After much thought, this past summer DeLynn contacted Epperly, indicating she planned to come to a game sometime this season.
DeLynn exchanged contact information with Epperly and his family, who are from Knoxville, Tenn.
Marking Quinn's first time flying in an airplane, the two traveled to Princeton, N.J., which is located about halfway between New York City and Philadelphia.
Epperly did not play in that game, however, as missing it with a turf toe injury.
During the game, Quinn and DeLynn sat with the quarterback's family - his mother, Kathy, and sister, Ashley.
In conversation, the two families determined they are related but they still aren't sure how, concluding the family tree is not quite complete in certain spots.
Also during the game, a Princeton staff member invited Quinn and DeLynn to be on the sidelines for the final two minutes.
When the game ended, Quinn was invited to go into the Princeton locker room, but he didn't want to leave his mother.
Instead, Epperly eventually emerged from the locker room and met with Quinn and DeLynn for about 15 minutes.
Almost three weeks later now, DeLynn said Quinn - who is on the autism spectrum - "doesn't understand the magnitude of what happened," but he sees photos from the trip after the fact and recognizes he is in them.
"My husband and I are both in education," DeLynn said. "I really looked at it as an opportunity for (Quinn) to do a lot of things he needs to work on."
Epperly went on to win the Ivy League Offensive Player of the Year award last year during his record-setting season.
This year the Tigers are 4-3 overall. Epperly, who has played in only five of the seven games, leads the team in rushing touchdowns with eight.
Last Saturday against visiting ..., 6 Nov 2013 [cached]
Last Saturday against visiting Cornell, Epperly produced one of the most remarkable performances in Tiger and Ivy League history as the junior lefty completed his first 29 passes of a contest won 53-20 by Princeton.
But by the end of the afternoon, the focus was squarely on Princeton University junior quarterback Quinn Epperly, who turned heads as he produced one of the most remarkable performances in Tiger and Ivy League history.
Ending the game completing 32-of-35 passes for 325 yards and three touchdowns, Epperly triggered a 53-20 rout of the Big Red before a crowd of 7,206 as Princeton improved to 6-1 overall and 4-0 Ivy, taking sole possession of first place in the league standings.
Early in the afternoon, Epperly had the sense that he was in a groove. "At halftime one of the other quarterbacks came up and asked if we had an incompletion and I said I couldn't really remember one," recalled Epperly.
Afterward, Epperly, whose playing style is reminiscent of Tim Tebow, sounded sentiments similar to the former Florida star and Heisman Trophy winner.
"It is an honor," said Epperly who rushed for a team-high 69 yards and three touchdowns.
"You could tell he was on fire," said Surace of Epperly, who was named the Ivy Offensive Player of the Week for a record third straight week and was featured prominently on ESPN's SportsCenter throughout Saturday night.
The Tigers marched 31 yards on six plays and took a 7-0 lead after a 7-yard touchdown pass from Epperly to Roman Wilson.
After a Cornell field goal, Epperly excelled with his feet and arm, rushing for 27 yards and hitting three passes in a drive culminated by his one-yard plunge as the Tigers went up 15-3.
With its lead narrowed to 15-13, Princeton broke the game open as Epperly scored his second TD of the game to culminate an 80-yard scoring march and then ran for a third with 1:01 left in the half as Princeton built a 29-13 lead heading into intermission.
On the next Tiger possession, Epperly found Wilson in the end zone for a 17-yard scoring strike as the lead increased to 43-13.
With the Tigers headed to Philadelphia for a critical clash at Penn (4-3 overall, 3-1 Ivy), Epperly is not going to let the accolades from his record-breaking effort distract him from the task at hand.
"We focus in on what we can control, coming to practice every week, working hard, and trying to win the remaining games," said Epperly, who has passed for 18 touchdowns and rushed for 14 more this fall to help the Tigers win six straight since an opening day loss to Lehigh.

More ominously, defending co-champion Princeton, led by quarterback Quinn Epperly (2013 Ivy League Player of the Year), again was scoring in bunches, while Yale, recently somnolent, was giving every sign of a great awakening, especially with an overtime upset of Army.
