Quarterback Steve Probst rushed for three touchdowns, including a 25-yard score in overtime, as Rhode Island defeated Brown, 27-24, yesterday in Kingston, R.I.

Probst also had TD runs of 1 and 5 yards and Jarrod Williams recovered a blocked punt in the end zone to stake the Rams (2-2) to a 21-14 lead.

Kyle Newhall-Caballero, who had 325 passing yards, threw his third TD pass of the day for the Bears (2-1), a 19-yarder to Jimmy Saros, to tie the game at 21 with 11:59 left in regulation.

In overtime, freshman Alexander Norocea, who tied a Brown record with five field goals in a 29-14 win over Harvard last week, kicked a 34-yarder. Then Probst wasted no time on the Rams’ first OT play in the 95th meeting for the Governor’s Cup.

Probst was 22 of 38 for 187 yards, and also rushed for 59. Ayo Isijola added 97 yards on the ground.

Penn 35, Dartmouth 28 — Billy Ragone rushed for three touchdowns, including the 1-yard winner in overtime, and passed for another score to lead the host Quakers.

Ragone’s 22-yard pass to David Wurst set up his scoring run. Dartmouth gained only 7 yards on its OT possession, which included three incomplete passes, as the Quakers (2-1, 1-0) won their ninth straight Ivy League game.

Dartmouth (2-1, 0-1), which opened the season 2-0 for the first time in 13 years, lost its third straight to Penn and 12th of the last 13 in the series.

Columbia 42, Princeton 14 — Sean Brackett tied a Lions record with five TD passes in a rout of the Tigers in New York.

Brackett completed 18 of 24 passes for 273 of Columbia’s 528 total yards.

Columbia (2-1, 1-0), which fell behind, 7-0, early in the second quarter, answered with 35 straight points, including 21 in the second quarter. It marked the first time the Lions won consecutive games over Princeton in the 79-game series.

Andrew Kennedy had seven catches for 148 yards and two touchdowns for the Lions, and Nick Gerst added 124 yards on 17 carries. Trey Peacock led the Tigers (1-2, 0-1) with 125 yards on 11 catches.

Albany 23, Yale 20 — The Great Danes (2-2) blocked an extra point, a punt, and a field goal, and recovered an onside kick en route to a narrow victory over the Bulldogs (2-1) in New Haven in the first meeting between the schools.

Cornell 21, Bucknell 12 — At Lewisburg, Pa., Nick Booker-Tandy rushed for 61 yards, including a TD, and quarterback Jeff Matthews added a 1-yard TD run as the Big Red (1-2) won despite losing three fumbles.
