Columbia blew a 10-point lead with six minutes remaining and extended its record losing streak to 41 games when quarterback Danny Clark scored on an 11-yard run with 47 seconds left to lead Brown to a 19-16 victory yesterday in Providence, R.I.
With the Bruins (7-3, 5-2 Ivy League) trailing by 16-6 midway through the fourth quarter, they went 80 yards in eight plays, finishing with Clark's two-yard touchdown pass to Lane Wood.
Columbia (0-10, 0-7) punted on its next possession and Brown took over on its 39 with 3:51 remaining. The Bruins drove to the Columbia 11 before fumbling on third down.
But, after a minute's delay, the officials ruled Brown recovered, and, on fourth and two, Clark went over right guard and into the end zone.
Columbia's last chance to win ended when Brown safety Walt Cataldo intercepted quarterback Dave Putelo's pass in the closing seconds.
Pitt 28, Kent State 5:
In Pittsburgh, Craig Heyward had career highs of 259 yards and 41 carries for his 11th consecutive 100-yard game and scored three touchdowns for the 19th-ranked and Bluebonnet Bowl-bound Panthers (8-3). Kent State finished 7-4.
Heyward, who gained 134 yards in the first quarter, became only the eighth player in NCAA Division I-A history to rush for 100 yards in all 11 of his team's regular season games. The 260-pound junior, the nation's leading rusher, has gained 1,655 yards this season.
Heyward, in snow and a 30-mph wind that put the wind chill factor at minus 10, scored on a 58-yard run on Pitt's third play. He made it 14-0 later in the quarter by carrying all 10 times on a 38-yard scoring drive ended by his one-yard run.
Heyward tied an NCAA record for consecutive rushes, 15, set by Ernest Anderson of Oklahoma State against Tulsa in 1982.
Penn 49, Dartmouth 7:
In Philadelphia, Chris Flynn rushed for 194 yards and tied a 47-year-old record with five touchdowns for the Quakers (4-6, 3-4 Ivy). Dartmouth completed its season 2-8 and 1-6.
Flynn matched the school record set by Frank Reagan in 1940 against Princeton. His 194 yards gives him a four-year total of 2,179 yards, the second highest in Penn history.
