Penn football readies for their opener on Saturday at Lafayette.
Penn football is looking to bounce back from a 5-5 season, and compete for the Ivy League crown.
After a 5-5 2011 season, the Penn Quakers are hoping to jump back up to their familiar place at the top of Ivy League in 2012.
Penn head coach Al Bagnoli says there’s a big difference between finishing 6-4 or finishing 5-5.
Harvard is a perfect 5-0 in the Ancient 8 (7-1 overall), and Penn is just a game behind, at 4-1 (5-3 overall).
One of college football’s best rivalries will be on display on Saturday at Franklin Field, as the Penn Quakers host the Princeton Tigers.
Penn is 4-2 overall and 3-0 in the Ivy league.
Two of the three team undefeated in Ivy League play will battle on Saturday afternoon at Franklin Field, as the Penn Quakers host Yale.
Billy Ragone scored his second touchdown of the day on a 7-yard run with 25 seconds remaining and Pennsylvania edged Columbia 27-20 on Saturday.
The Quakers have won 14 straight in this series and Columbia is 0-4 in 2011, but Penn head coach Al Bagnoli says they are not taking the Lions lightly.
Quakers’ head coach Al Bagnoli is hopeful that last Saturday’s victory over Dartmouth can help set the table for this Saturday’s matchup against Fordham.
Billy Ragone orchestrated Pennsylvania’s final drive, which he finished with a 3-yard touchdown pass with 3 seconds left, leading the Quakers to a 22-20 win over Dartmouth on Saturday night.
“They are very experienced,” says Penn head coach Al Bagnoli of the Dartmouth team. “I think they have been pointing to this year for a long time.”
The Wildcats are a very uncharacteristic 0-3, while the Quakers lost their season opener last week in uncharacteristic fashion, 37-12, at home to Lafayette.
Two-time defending league champ Penn will start its season at Franklin Field, hosting Lafayette out of the Patriot League.
