PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Kyle Rowley passed for two touchdowns and Sean Jensen broke the Ivy League career scoring record for kickers as Brown routed Dartmouth 41-16 on Saturday.
Rowley, the third-ranked passer in 1-AA, completed 15 of 25 passes for 198 yards. Jensen kicked five extra points which upped his career point total to 220 - two more than the record set by Penn's Jason Feinberg in 2000. Brown tailback Michael Malan accounted for 143 yards and one touchdown on 23 carries.
The victory enabled Brown (5-3 overall, 5-2 Ivy) to clinch a fifth consecutive winning season for only the second time in Ivy League history. The 41 points are the most Brown has scored against Dartmouth in the 79-game history of the series.
Rowley's touchdown passes came in the first quarter: a short toss in the left flat to Chas Gessner who broke it 35 yards for a score and a 12-yard touchdown pass to David Brookman on a tight end screen.
Dartmouth (1-7, 1-5) pulled within 20-10 when Michael Gratch plunged into the end zone from the 2 with 14 seconds left in the half.
The Bears put the game out of reach in the third quarter. After Joel Barone forced a fumble when he tackled Dartmouth quarterback Joe Kinder, Ewa Aihiavbere picked the ball up on the 4 and ran it in just 53 seconds into the period.
Brown wrapped it up late in the fourth quarter when senior fullback Mike Borgonzi scored his first career touchdown on a 2-yard run.
