PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Brown ended Pennnsylvania’s 18-game Ivy League winning streak 6-0 on Saturday on the strength of two field goals by Alexander Norocea.

The win gave Brown (6-1, 3-1) its second straight home shutout for the first time since 1985.

Norocea withstood driving rain to kick a 39-yard field goal in the second quarter and a 42-yarder as time expired in the third for Brown, which has won five in a row.

Penn (4-3, 3-1) had a four-game winning streak snapped and was shut out for the first time since losing to Harvard on Nov. 15, 1997.

The sloppy conditions were a factor as both teams managed less than 200 yards total offense. Penn turned the ball over five times, including three interceptions by Billy Ragone, and was held to 32 yards passing. Penn missed a field goal on its only trip inside the Brown 20.
