PHILADELPHIA -- Brown got four touchdown passes from Michael Dougherty in a 34-27 win over Penn on Saturday to take over the top spot in the Ivy League.
Buddy Farnham caught two touchdown passes -- including a 57-yarder in the second quarter -- from Dougherty, and Bobby Seawall had a touchdown catch and scored once on the ground for Brown (5-2, 4-0 Ivy League).
The Quakers (4-3, 3-1) blocked a punt and Tyson Maugle covered the ball in the end zone for a touchdown, making the score 34-27 with 1:21 left. But Farnham recovered the onside kick and Brown ran out the clock.
Three different quarterbacks saw significant playing time for Penn. Robert Irvin connected with Brad Blackmon on a 12-yard touchdown pass. Blackmon, a running back, also had a 3-yard TD pass for the Quakers.
The Quakers turned the ball over four times -- three fumbles and one interception -- setting up two Brown touchdowns. Irvin had a crucial fumble in the third quarter, turning the ball over at the Penn 11-yard line. Brown scored two plays later on a touchdown pass from Dougherty to Farnham to give the Bears a 21-17 lead.
All told, five different passers threw for 264 yards for Penn.
Farnham finished with six catches for 120 yards and Colin Cloherty had a 29-yard TD catch with 4:05 left.
