KINGSTON, R.I. -- Derek Cassidy fired a career-high five touchdown passes as Rhode Island beat in-state rival Brown University 37-13 to win the Governor's Cup.

Cassidy completed 25 of 37 attempts for 298 yards to help Rhode Island improve to 2-4 (0-2 CAA) Saturday. The Bears fell to 2-1 (1-0 Ivy). The Rams defeated the Bears 49-42 in double overtime a year ago.

Rhode Island had a 13-0 halftime lead and took advantage of two Brown fumbles and two intercepted passes to secure the victory.
