Brown accounted for all four touchdowns in the Weevils’ 30-23 win on Thursday against Southern Nazarene. He threw three first-half touchdowns and added a six-yard rushing score. He connected with All-American tight end DeAndre Washington seven times for 101 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He completed 19-of-32 passes for a career-high 334 yards.
