Trailing 16-0 at the half, Brown's second half rally came up two points short as the Bears dropped a 16-14 decision to Princeton in an Ivy League game at Princeton Stadium.
Junior quarterback Nate Poole tossed a 30 yard scoring pass to senior Brandon Buchanan for Brown's first score with 2:14 left in the third quarter. Poole then drove the Bears 80 yards in six plays, with senior Joe Rackley driving into the end zone for a three yard touchdown to pull the Bears to within 16-14 with 11:43 remaining in the game.
Brown had several opportunities down the stretch, but Poole was intercepted twice in the last five minutes.
Defensively, senior linebacker Jeremiah Watts and sophomore defensive back Anjel Gutierrez made 10 tackles each. Junior Chriatian Garnett had eight tackles, including three for a loss of 10 yards.
