His most notable game was against Louisiana at Monroe; completing 8-of-18 passes for 31 yards and demonstrating his mobility with three rushing attempts for 14 yards.
The following year in 2020, Brown’s stats spoke for themselves as he finished second in the Sun Belt Conference in passing yards per game (227.8), total offense per game (257.9), and points responsible for per game (14.6). He recorded 24 touchdowns, with 17 through the air and an astonishing seven on the ground, setting a new GSU freshman record for rushing touchdowns.

Brown was named to the 2020 FWAA Freshman All-American Watch List after leading the offense to a new school record of 33.3 points per game. The freshman continued to dominate becoming the team’s third-leading rusher, racking up 301 yards on 98 carries, resulting in 2,579 total offense yards.
