PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Buddy Farnham caught 14 passes for 111 yards and scored a touchdown, and Brown scored on its first three possessions and held on to beat Stony Brook 17-7 on Saturday.

Stony Brook (1-3) entered the game averaging 356 yards of total offense. But Brown, playing its season opener, limited Stony Brook to just 147 yards of offense and used a goal-line stand to protect a 17-0 lead going into halftime.

Brown drove 67 yards on seven plays on its opening possession, with tailback Jonathan Edwards bursting 19 yards up the middle for a touchdown and a 7-0 lead.

Farnham gave Brown a 14-0 lead on a 2-yard run, and a Rob Ranney field goal 44 seconds into the second quarter put the Bears up by 17.

Stony Brook scored its lone points in the fourth quarter when Cory Giddings intercepted a Michael Dougherty pass and returned it 19 yards for a touchdown.

Dougherty completed 25 of 36 passes for 175 yards.

Stony Brook had a first-and-goal on Brown's 2-yard-line with just over a minute left in the first half. But the Sea Wolves gained zero yards on two running plays, and quarterback Dan Sweeney fumbled after a sack by Andrew Serrano.

Brown's James Develin recovered the ball at Brown's 5-yard-line to keep Stony Brook out of the end zone and take a shutout into the half.

It was the first meeting between the schools.
