Oct. 18, 2003

Providence, RI - Princeton scored 21 unanswered fourth quarter points to rally from a 14-13 deficit and defeat Brown, 34-14 in an Ivy League game at Brown Stadium before a Homecoming crowd of 9,879.

Brown grabbed an early 7-0 first quarter lead when sophomore runningback Nick Hartigan bulled his way into the end zone from two yards out, capping a 54 yard scoring drive.

Princeton cut the lead to 7-6 at the half and grabbed its first lead, 13-7, with 20 seconds left in the third quarter on a 99-yard pass play, the longest pass play in Ivy League football history and longest in NCAA history.

The Bears rallied to take a 14-13 lead early in the fourth quarter when Hartigan scored again, this time scoring on a 7 yard run. Hartigan, the nation's seventh leading rusher, ran for 156 yards on 40 carries.

Brown's defense was led by Craig Young and Jason Ching, who made seven tackles each.

The Bears will be back in action next Saturday against Cornell in Ithaca, New York.
