Princeton comes from behind to beat Brown 39-17

Quinn Epperly threw for 233 yards and rushed for three

touchdowns to lead Princeton to a 39-17 come-from-behind victory

over Brown Saturday night.

Epperly also led the Tigers (4-1, 2-0 Ivy) in rushing with 95

yards.

Brown (3-2, 0-2) took a 17-0 lead early in the second quarter

when defensive back Jacob Spuron blocked a Princeton punt. Michael

Walsh returned it 18 yards for a Bears touchdown.

Epperly responded at the opening of the second half by taking

the Tigers 79 yards and over the goal line for a Princeton score.

The Brown defense anticipated the 2-point conversion attempt,

breaking up Epperly’s pass to wide receiver Roman Wilson and

putting the halftime score at 17-6.

But the Princeton scoring run would continue unabated in the

second half with 5 more unanswered TDs – including three touchdown

runs by Epperly – to give the Tigers the lead and the win.
