Box Score

Football: Brown 35, Rhode Island 21 - FINAL

How It Happened:

Brown quarterback Kyle Newhall-Caballero threw for a pair of touchdowns and ran for two more as the Bears defeated Rhode Island in the annual Governor's Cup Saturday.

The night started well for Rhode Island (1-3) when quarterback Steve Probst ripped off a 73-yard rushing touchdown on the Rams' first possession of the night. It was the longest rush of his career for Probst, who later added a 61-yard scoring run.

However, it was all Brown in between the two big plays from Probst. Newhall-Cabellero hit Mark Kachmer for a 27-yard strike at 7:14 of the first quarter, and then found Alex Tounkara-Kone for 17 yards and a 14-7 lead. Newhall-Caballero wasn't finished, as his 2-yard run gave Brown a 21-7 lead before halftime.

Probst got Rhody back in the game with his 61-yard run just 1:02 into the third quarter, but the momentum was short lived. Newhall-Caballero responded with his fourth touchdown of the night, a 2-yard scoring run with 2:45 left in the third that allowed Brown to salt the game away.

Inside the Box Score and Beyond:

* Senior Steve Probst's 73-yard touchdown run in the first quarter was the longest jaunt of his career. In the third quarter, he added his second longest career rush, scoring on a 61-yard run. He finished with a career-high 180 yards on 11 attempts.

* Anthony Baskerville entered the game averaging 5.33 catches per game, but he was held without a catch in the first half. He did make an incredible one-handed, diving grab for a long gain early in the game, but it was negated by a penalty. Baskerville did catch a 15-yard touchdown pass late in the game and finished with two catches for 24 yards.

* The home team has now won the last four games in the Governor's Cup. Despite the loss, Rhode Island still holds a 16-14 lead all-time in the Cup.

* Rhode Island committed a season-high five turnovers (three interceptions, two fumbles). The Rams had turned the ball over just five times in their first three games combined.
