PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Quinn Epperly threw for 233 yards and rushed for three touchdowns to lead Princeton to a 39-17 come-from-behind victory over Brown Saturday night.
Epperly also led the Tigers (4-1, 2-0 Ivy) in rushing with 95 yards.
Brown (3-2, 0-2) took a 17-0 lead early in the second quarter when defensive back Jacob Spuron blocked a Princeton punt. Michael Walsh returned it 18 yards for a Bears touchdown.
Epperly responded at the opening of the second half by taking the Tigers 79 yards and over the goal line for a Princeton score. The Brown defense anticipated the 2-point conversion attempt, breaking up Epperly's pass to wide receiver Roman Wilson and putting the halftime score at 17-6.
But the Princeton scoring run would continue unabated in the second half with 5 more unanswered TDs -- including three touchdown runs by Epperly -- to give the Tigers the lead and the win.
The destination for Week 6 of the Big 12 Ultimate Road Trip is unanimous, as all three conference reporters would head to the Red River Rivalry.
The defense, as usual, looks solid at Missouri. But the offense will need to make rapid improvement under a new coaching staff.
Darius Lee-Campbell arrived at Iowa State as a 3-star dual-threat QB, but he has moved to wide receiver and shown the new coaching staff he's ready.
The Pac-12 had six receivers reach 1,000 yards last season. How many can we expect to hit quadruple figures this year?

The Dak Prescott era is over, and coach Dan Mullen is rebuilding the offense from the ground up.
