Columbia edges Cornell 34-26 after five interceptions

ITHACA, N.Y. (AP) Gabriel Hollingsworth and Bryson Canty wrapped touchdowns around a Will Allen interception early in the fourth quarter as Columbia broke open a tied game to defeat Cornell 34-26 on Saturday in the annual Empire State Bowl.

The see-saw season finale was knotted at 19-19 when Hollingsworth scored on a 2-yard run on the first play of the fourth quarter. Four plays later Allen intercepted a Richie Kenney pass, returning it 47 yards and setting up Canty's 6-yard TD catch from Joe Green, pushing the lead to 32-19.

Allen had two of Columbia's five interceptions.
