PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Alex Norocea kicked five field goals and Brown held a sputtering Harvard offense in check for a 29-14 Ivy League victory on Saturday night.
It was the first night game at Brown Stadium, which opened in 1925.
The Bruins (2-0, 1-0) held possession for 39:05 and led 23-0 before the Crimson (1-1, 0-1) scored 7 seconds before halftime on Andrew Hatch's 21-yard pass to Marco Iannuzzi.
Iannuzzi returned the opening second-half kickoff 95 yards to make it 23-14, but Harvard got no closer. Hatch threw his second interception, leading to a 44-yard Norocea field goal with 9:28 left in the third quarter.
Harvard also fumbled four times, losing one with 2:44 left in the quarter when Brown recovered a snap over the head of Harvard punter Jacob Dombrowski. Norocea's fifth field goal made it 29-14.
Mark Kachmer ran for Brown's two touchdowns, carrying 19 times for 89 yards.
