Brown (5-11, 170) hauled in a five-yard scoring catch from quarterback Tony Abenoja with 1:00 remaining in the second quarter to help the Gorillas draw even at 14-14. He then had a key 38-yard catch 40 seconds later that set up PSU's go-ahead score with six ticks remaining in the first half.

Brown added a 30-yard scoring catch to open the second half as the Gorillas built a 28-14 cushion, and his eight-yard grab in the games final minute allowed Pitt State run out the clock and claim a hard-fought win.
