Providence, RI -
It's Senior Day at Brown Stadium on Saturday, and the Bears look to even their Ivy record at 3-3 at home against Dartmouth in the final home game Brown's 18 seniors. A special Senior Day ceremony will take place prior to the start of the game.
Brown's 18 seniors are: Kai Brown, Nick D'India, Patrick Fisher, Nick Houston, Patrick Lysaght, Anthony Martucci, Steven Morgan, Matt Mullenax, Robert Ranney, Paul Raymond, Geoff Rhatican, Tyler Rowley, James Tull, Robert Weiss, Jose Yearwood, tri-captain Eric Brewer, tri-captain Dereck Knight, and tri-captain AJ Tracey.
After being limited to just 99 passing yards in a loss to Yale last week, the Bears will look to get their high-octane offense back on track against the Big Green. Brown's passing offense is still number one in the Ivy League with 300 yards per game, but the Bears defense will have to stop a Big Green offense that racked up 410 total yards last week.
The remnants of Tropical Storm Noel pelted the Yale Bowl and disarmed Brown's passing game, as the Bears dropped a 17-7 decision to Yale last week, falling to 3-5 overall, 2-3 in the Ivy League. Dartmouth stayed dry in Hanover and tied a school record for points in a 59-31 win over Cornell, extending its record to 3-5 overall and 3-2 in the Ivy League.
Brown and Dartmouth have met 84 times, dating back to 1894, with the Big Green holding a 54-26-4 series advantage. Dartmouth pulled out a 19-13 win in overtime last year in Hanover, New Hampshire. Brown had won seven of the previous eight meetings between the two teams, including a hard-fought 24-14 victory in 2005.
