HANOVER, N.H. (AP) Patrick Donnelly rallied Brown to two fourth-quarter touchdowns and a 28-24 Ivy League victory Saturday over Dartmouth.

Donnelly found Jonah Fay with an 18-yard scoring pass with 1:14 remaining for the winning score at the end of an 80-yard drive as the Bears (6-3, 3-3) clinched their fifth consecutive winning season.

On Brown's previous possession, Donnelly scored on a 3-yard run for the Bears (6-3, 3-3), who started at the Dartmouth 21 after A.J. Cruz's 20-yard punt return.

Donnelly completed 20 of 32 passes for 233 yards and two touchdowns and carried eight times for 48 yards. His 2-yard touchdown run with 10 seconds left until halftime brought Brown within 17-14.

The Big Green (5-4, 3-3) went ahead 24-14 on Dalyn Williams' 10-yard touchdown pass to Michael Reilly with 9 seconds left in the third quarter.

Dominick Pierre carried 28 times for 136 yards and two touchdowns for Dartmouth.
