PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Miles Craigwell and Jake Powers stopped Gino Gordon inches short of the goal line on a two-point conversion run with 1:03 left on Saturday as Brown took advantage of an early missed extra point by Harvard to win 24-22 in the rain.

The victory was Brown's first over Harvard since 1999.

Liam O'Hagan threw just one pass in the game, a 3-yard touchdown to Matt Luft that pulled the Crimson (1-1, 0-1 Ivy League) within two points. Brown was penalized for roughing the quarterback on the play, moving the ball halfway from the 3 yard-line to the goal.

Gordon tried to bull his way into the end zone, but Craigwell and Powers prevented the game from going into overtime.

"It's an unbelievable feeling to beat them after all these years," Brown coach Phil Estes said.

Chris Pizzotti threw a 53-yard touchdown pass to Luft for Harvard early in the first quarter, but Patrick Long missed the extra point. Rizzotti connected with Gordon on a 17-yard screen play on the first play of the second for a TD that made it 13-0.

Brown (2-0, 1-0) countered with a seven-play, 75-yard drive that ended when Michael Dougherty threw 25-yard touchdown pass to Buddy Farnham. After a series of turnovers, Brown's David Clement recovered a Ben Jenkins fumble on Harvard's 13 to set up a 3-yard touchdown run by Bobby Sewell with 8:37 left in the first half.

Dougherty connected with Sewell for 38 yards, then hit Farnham with a 23-yard TD to give Brown a 21-13 lead.

Dougherty completed 20-of-36 passes for 231 yards and two touchdowns while Dereck Knight gained 84 yards on 18 carries. Farnham caught four passes for 78 yards, giving him 110 career receptions and moving him past his father, Bob, and Mike Geroux into eighth place on Brown's all-time receptions list.

Pizzotti completed 25-of-45 passes for 320 yards and two touchdowns.
