#48: Schwieger's First Push

One of the unique things about eventual co-Bushnell Cup winner Nick Schwieger last season was his ability to break off big runs and pick up short yardage gains when the Green needed them too.

On Dartmouth's first drive of the week 6 game at Wien Stadium, Schwieger proved that with a tough three yard gain on a 4th and 2 at the Columbia 21.

The Big Green ended up getting a field goal on that drive, thanks greatly to 27 big receiving yards by Schwieger and four very tough net rushing yards as well.

Dartmouth's ability to convert tough 3rd and 4th down plays would come back to haunt the Lions much more later that day.
