The Raiders turned it over on downs on the next possession and, utilizing a short field, Jacob Bissell made a 22-yard field goal. Bissell added a 40-yarder later after Lafayette forced a three-and-out.
Colgate responded in the second with a pair of long touchdown drives, with Holland scoring on 2- and 1-yard plunges, and led 14-13 at intermission.
In the third, Jake Melville used 36- and 25-yard completions to set up his 16-yard touchdown run. Two more Bissell field goals, from 38 and 26 yards out, brought Lafayette to within 2 points midway through the fourth before Colgate's clinching drive.
