HANOVER — Even for 20th-year Dartmouth football coach Buddy Teevens, it was hard to fathom what his offense produced in its 42-10 homecoming victory over Yale with 6,796 fans in attendance for what was an early-season Ivy League showdown Saturday at Memorial Field.

The Big Green (4-0, 2-0 Ivy) recorded six touchdowns and 433 yards of total offense over 45 plays and 21 minutes, 30 seconds of possession to help Teevens secure his 100th career win leading the program. Yale (3-1, 1-1 Ivy) had the ball for 38:30, producing 384 yards of total offense on 81 plays.

Dartmouth needed six or fewer plays to find the end zone on each of its scoring drives, which all came over its first eight possessions.

“We weren’t out there long offensively but we were productive and I think we kind of fed off each other,” Teevens said.

Big Green junior Niko Mermigas and freshman Quinten Arello, who made his first career start Saturday, both intercepted Yale quarterback Kurt Rawlings in the first half to set up Dartmouth’s second and third scoring drives, respectively. Arello’s pick marked the first of his career.

“I think that the coaches really game-planned very well throughout the week and it just seemed like everything we put on was working and (Yale) didn’t really have an answer for it,” Dartmouth wide receiver Drew Estrada said. “That’s not to say they’re a bad team. They’re a great team. I think we just executed really well (Saturday).”

Estrada finished with five catches and a career-high 203 receiving yards, which is the third-most ever by a Dartmouth receiver, and two touchdowns. The senior logged 173 yards on 12 receptions over Dartmouth’s first three games and registered 273 yards on 27 catches over nine games last year.

Dartmouth quarterbacks Jared Gerbino and Derek Kyler went a combined 10 of 12 passing for 315 yards and three touchdowns. Gerbino, a senior, tossed two of those scores and logged 224 of those yards on five completions. He also ran 11 times for a game-high 59 yards and a TD.{/span}{span}{span} {/span}{/span}{p dir=”ltr”}{span}“They run the ball very well, which forces people to come up,” Yale junior wide receiver/defensive back Melvin Rouse II said of the Big Green. “They lullaby you to sleep and then boom — big shots. If you don’t play disciplined against Dartmouth, what just happened to us will happen.”

Gerbino and Kyler, a junior, both ran and passed for a touchdown in the first half to power the Big Green to a 28-3 halftime advantage.

On the game’s second play from scrimmage, Gerbino hit a wide open Estrada over the middle for a 75-yard catch-and-run touchdown and also ran in a 6-yard score with 4:30 left in the first quarter to help build a 14-0 Big Green lead.

Kyler ran in a 12-yard TD down the left sideline with 1:08 left in the opening quarter and Connor Davis followed up with his third of six point-after kicks to give Dartmouth a 21-0 advantage. Kyler also connected with a wide open Hunter Hagdorn over the middle for a 31-yard Big Green touchdown with 25 seconds left before halftime.

The Big Green scored on each of their first two second-half drives. Gerbino connected with Estrada on a streak pass down the right sideline for a 61-yard score and junior Dakari Falconer (six carries, 32 yards) ran 10 yards untouched into the end zone to record his first career TD and cap Dartmouth’s scoring.

Yale got on the board with 10:56 left in the first half, when Sam Tuckerman made a 42-yard field goal. He also pushed a 23-yard attempt wide right with 1:43 remaining in the first half.

Yale’s lone touchdown came on a 12-yard pass from backup quarterback Nolan Grooms to Darrion Carrington with 47 seconds left after both teams pulled their starters.

Rawlings went 15 of 26 passing for 143 yards. Yale backup quarterback Griffin O’Connor, who was carted off the field in the third quarter, completed six of his 13 passing attempts for 52 yards. Alan Lamar ran for a team-high 48 yards on 11 carries and Rouse logged a team-high six catches and 65 receiving yards for the Bulldogs.

Yale averaged 33 points over its first three games.

“They were better than us in every facet of the game,” Yale coach Tony Reno said of the Big Green. “They capitalized on mistakes, they made plays on both sides of the ball and obviously the outcome was just because of how well they played.”
