EASTON, Pa. (AP) -- Jamaal Branch rushed for 200 yards and two touchdowns and Colgate withstood a late Lafayette charge to record a 47-31 victory on Saturday.

Branch, who carried 29 times, scored on TD runs of 6 and 9 yards in the first quarter. Colgate (9-0, 4-0 Patriot League) took a 41-10 lead with 8:09 left in the third quarter on Chris Brown's 23-yard TD pass to John Frieser.

Marko Glavic, who went 33-for-56 for 392 yards and three TDs, started Lafayette's comeback with an 8-yard touchdown pass to Justin Lauver with 4:54 left in the third period. Glavic hit Archie Fisher with two TD passes -- a 29-yarder late in the third quarter and a 13-yarder early in the fourth -- and Lafayette (3-5, 0-4) made it 41-31.

Brown put the game away with an 8-yard touchdown run with 10:14 left in the game. The Colgate quarterback finished went 13-for-18 for 202 yards and two TDs.
