During the seven-play, 60-yard game-winning drive that began with 1:16 left to play, Foote went 5-for-7 for 45 yards, throwing a 10-yard touchdown pass to Nick Resor.

He currently leads the nation with 368 yards passing, 34.2 completions and 366.4 yards of total offense/game.

Foote was also named the NESCAC Offensive Player of the Week for the second time this fall (Oct. 2) and garnered Co-Offensive Player of the Week for the North Division from the ECAC.
