ITHACA, N.Y. (AP) - Harold Coles ran for two touchdowns and the Cornell defense smothered Brown in a 34-7 victory on Saturday to end a nine-game skid in the series.

Coles was one of four players to run for at least 40 yards as Cornell (2-4, 2-1 Ivy League) piled up 276 yards on the ground. Coles had 65 yards on just six carries with touchdown runs of 3 and 42 yards. Jack Gellatly had 74 yards on seven carries, Chris Walker added 66 yards on 16 attempts, and both scored on 3-yard runs.

Dalton Banks completed 19 of 26 passes for 228 yards to help Cornell gain 504 total yards.

Brown (2-4, 0-3) had just six first downs, 18 rushing yards, 161 yards of total offense and went 1 for 13 on third downs.

Five different players had sacks for Cornell, which last beat the Bears in 2007, also on homecoming, 38-31 in overtime.
