PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – There are a lot of college football programs in the country that would do anything to have one talented, experienced quarterback lead their offense.
The Penn Quakers are currently reaping the benefits of having two.
With fifth-year senior starter Billy Ragone out last week with a foot/ankle injury, Penn plugged in their other fifth-year senior, Ryan Becker, and he led the way in a 28-17 win over Yale.
“We have tremendous confidence in Ryan,” Penn head coach Al Bagnoli tells KYW Newsradio. “He thoroughly understands our offense, can execute it. So we felt that we were in good hands and that allowed us to sit Billy.”
Becker went 10 of 13 for 167 yards and two touchdowns in the win over Yale, a win which improved the Quakers to 4-2 overall on the season and, more importantly, 3-0 in the Ivy League.
