Columbia 22, Brown 21

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- Jon Rocholl kicked a 27-yard field goal with three seconds to play as Columbia rallied for a 22-21 victory over Brown in the final game of the season for both teams Saturday.

After Steve Morgan missed a 45-yard field-goal attempt with 3:49 left that would have given Brown (3-7, 2-5 Ivy League) a four-point lead, the Lions (5-5, 2-5) marched 73 yards in 16 plays.

Rocholl, who was benched earlier in the game after missing an extra point and a 31-yard field-goal attempt, split the uprights for the 23rd field goal of his career. It tied the sophomore with Nick Rudd for most career field goals in school history.

Columbia had lost 17 consecutive games at Brown Stadium.

The Lions began play having allowed the fewest points in the Ivy League but Brown bolted to a 14-0 lead after one quarter on a three-yard run by quarterback Joe DiGiacomo and a one-yard run by Brandon Markey.

Columbia scored early in the second quarter when DiGiacomo fumbled after being sacked by Darren Schmidt, and Todd Abrams returned the ball 30 yards for a score.

Rocholl kicked a 42-yard field goal that sliced Brown's lead to 14-9 at halftime.

After Patrick Huston's 27-yard field goal brought Columbia to within 14-12, Brown countered with an 81-yard drive, capped by DiGiacomo's 13-yard touchdown pass to Colin Cloherty for a 21-12 lead.

Columbia came right back and pulled within 21-19 on a six-yard touchdown pass from Craig Hormann to Jordan Davis.

Hormann completed 30 of 43 passes for 285 yards and one touchdown.
