EASTON, Pa. (AP) — Grant Breneman and Malik Twyman ran for touchdowns and Colgate defeated Lafayette 16-0 on Saturday, closing out the season with three consecutive conference wins.

The Raiders (4-8, 3-3 Patriot League) won despite picking up only 11 first downs and 224 yards on offense. Lafayette had 16 first downs and 242 yards on offense.

The loss drops the Leopards (3-8, 3-2) out of a tie for first place in the conference. Holy Cross (4-1) defeated Fordham 49-27 and now has sole possession of first place.
