Harvard Tops Brown 34-31 in See-Saw Ivy League Opener

It only took the Bears defense all of 46 seconds to silence the Harvard crowd on Friday evening in Massachusetts. Linebacker Ethan Royer got underneath a tipped pass from Crimson quarterback Charles Deprima and tracked it down for the pick. The Bears made the most of that stolen opportunity and marched right down to the goal line. Running back Stockton Owen bullied his way in for the go-ahead score and it was clear early that Brown had revenge on its mind.

Last season the Crimson won this matchup 35-28 in Rhode Island. This time at home, though, they would have to play from behind early.
