WASHINGTON -- Brown returned to the D.C. area for the first time since 2005 and turned in a dominant performance in all facets of the game – offense, defense and special teams - to earn a 37-10 win over Georgetown to disappoint an overflow Homecoming crowd on the Georgetown campus.
Cornell 15, Bucknell 10
LEWISBURG, Pa. -- The Cornell defense, the forgotten brother to the Big Red's explosive offense, posted its second straight impressive game. This time, it needed every bit of the effort.
