ITHACA, N.Y. (AP) — EJ Perry threw four touchdowns and his 30-yard scoring pass to a leaping Graham Walker with 29 seconds left sent Brown to a 49-45 win over Cornell on Saturday.

The Big Red took their last lead when Richie Kenney threw a 25-yard score to Thomas Glover with 1:59 left.

Perry overcame three interceptions to finish with 280 yards passing and 80 yards rushing with a score on the ground. Sutton caught three touchdown passes for Brown.

Wang threw for 121 yards and two scores and rushed for 101 and scored once.

The two teams combined for 1,081 yards.
