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