Columbia 35, Brown 28, OT

BY foxsports • November 19, 2011

Sean Brackett threw a touchdown pass and ran for a score in overtime, and the Columbia defense stopped Brown on a goal line stand to win a 35-28 game in double-overtime for the Lions' first win of the season in its last game Saturday.

After Brackett's 14-yard touchdown to Hamilton Garner sent it to a second overtime tied at 28-all, Columbia (1-9, 1-6 Ivy League) got the ball first. On Columbia's third play, Brackett ran it in from 16 yards out.

On Brown's seventh play of its possession in the second overtime, Kyle Newhall-Caballero completed a 6-yard pass to Tellef Lundevall on fourth-and-4 to set up first-and-goal at the 3.

But the Lions held Brown (7-3, 4-3) to a Newhall-Caballero incompletion, a 2-yard quarterback keeper and two rushes for no gain for the win.

Brackett had four rushing touchdowns and 62 yards, while throwing for a score and 139 yards.
