PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- Clifton Dawson's third touchdown capped Harvard's second-half comeback as the Crimson beat Brown 35-34 on Saturday.

Dawson scored on a 1-yard run with 12:16 left in the fourth to put Harvard ahead 35-31. Brown cut the lead to 35-34 on Steve Morgan's 28-yard field goal with 5:15 left.

Dawson gained 142 yards on 23 carries, adding touchdown runs of 80 and three yards for Harvard (2-0, 1-0 Ivy), which trailed 31-10 at halftime.

Nick Hartigan gained 175 yards on 34 carries and scored twice for Brown (1-1, 0-1).

The Bears took a 21-0 lead in the first quarter, as quarterback Joe DiGiacomo scored on a 53-yard run and threw an 83-yard touchdown pass to Jarrett Schreck. Hartigan added a 2-yard run to make it 21-0.

Harvard scored 18 unanswered points in the third quarter to climb back in the game. Ryan Fitzpatrick hit receiver Corey Mazza with a 35-yard TD pass early in the third and Matt Schindel added a 22-yard field goal before Dawson's 80-yard TD run closed the gap to 31-28.
