As far as I can tell from the media guide, Princeton never played more than 14 in a season and never won more than 12.

Looking at the old games (late 1800s/early 1900s) in the guide is fascinating. It was not unusual to win by 50 or 70 or even more to nothing, but the schedule included athletic clubs or even a prep school like Lawrenceville, plus the famous (and now banned-name) Carlisle Indians. In 1892, PU won 12 games by an AVERAGE of about 40-0, and it lost to Penn and Yale by average of 9-2. I was also intrigued by tidbits like hockey legend Hobey Baker also being captain of the football team (1913), and games played versus Georgetown at turn of the last century (and probably in the same Georgetown stadium).
