A Governor’s Cup Triumph: Brown defeats URI 35-21

In the 96th Governor’s Cup, also the second night game in Brown Stadium history, the Bears (2-1, 0-1 Ivy) came away with a convincing victory, 35-21, over the University of Rhode Island Rams (1-2). The Rams turned the ball over five times in the game, and the Bears’ offense took advantage throughout. Kyle Newhall-Caballero ‘11.5 led the way for Bruno, going 14-25 through the air for 177 yards and two touchdowns. The opposing QB, Steve Probst, had some ugly stats through the air, but galloped like a fine, galloping gazelle, racking up 156 yards on eight rushes and two long touchdowns.

The Bears are now 2-0 at Brown Stadium under the lights, after last year’s shellacking of Harvard and now this victory over the state rival Rams. Check out Monday’s BDH for thorough coverage of the game, including quotes from Coach Estes and players and an update on Nicholas Faber’s injury (we hope he’s okay). Until then, go Bruno!
