PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Patrick Donnelly passed for two touchdowns and the Brown defense dominated to help the Bears shut out Yale 20-0 in an Ivy League showdown Saturday.
Donnelly found Cody Taulbee for a 3-yard touchdown pass with five minutes left in the first quarter to put Brown (5-2, 2-3) on top 7-0. Donnelly finished 24 of 48 for 232 yards.
