Providence, R.I. – Bears’ senior quarterback Kyle Moreno has been named the Ivy League Offensive Player of the Week after rallying Brown from a 21-0 first quarter deficit to earn a 35-27 victory over Bryant in his first collegiate start.
Moreno was responsible for all five Brown touchdowns, including three passing and two via the ground. He tossed touchdown passes of 18, 11 and 11 yards, with his 11 yard strike to senior Garrett Swanky with 7:21 remaining in the third quarter giving Brown the lead for good.
Moreno also scored on a 10-yard run and, after Bryant drew to within one point, 28-27, scored Brown’s final touchdown to put the Bears up by eight points. Overall, Moreno completed 16-of-29 passes for 224 yards and zero interceptions, while rushing for 10 yards.
The Bears are back in action again on Saturday, September 24, hosting Harvard in a key early-season Ivy League match-up. Game time is 2:00 pm at Brown Stadium.
