PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Kevin Davidson threw for five touchdowns as Princeton rolled to a 65-22 win over Brown on Saturday.

With just one exception, Princeton scored on every drive in the first half starting with Tavish Rice's 24-yard field goal midway through the first quarter. Ryan Quigley ran for three touchdowns, Zachary Keller ran for another, and Davidson had three scoring throws, two to Birmelin and one to Sam Johnson to take a 51-19 advantage into halftime.

EJ Perry threw for 296 yards and two touchdowns for the Bears (1-4, 0-2).
