The Brown–Princeton football rivalry is an American college football rivalry between the Brown Bears and Princeton Tigers.[1][2][3]

Princeton won the first five games, played from 1898 to 1903.[1][4][5][6] Princeton won national championship in three of those five years and defeated Brown by a combined total of 122 to 11. The 1899 Princeton team shut out 10 of its 13 opponents, with Brown one of only three teams to score against the Tigers.[7]

After a 25-year hiatus, the series resumed in 1929. Brown won three consecutive games from 1929 to 1931,[8][9] becoming the first team in history to win three consecutive games against Princeton.[1]

The series has been an annual match since 1946, as both teams became members of the Ivy League in 1946.[2] Princeton's longest winning streak in the series was 18 games, running from 1955 to 1972. Brown's longest winning streak was eight games, running from 1973 to 1980.

The series has been competitive in the 21st century, with Princeton winning ten games and Brown winning eight games.
