Entering Saturday’s game against Yale, Penn football knew it couldn’t try to tackle running back Tyler Varga one-on-one or allow quarterback Morgan Roberts to make big plays if it wanted to pull off an upset.
The Red and Blue couldn’t do either of those things, and a familiar result ensued.
Yale scored early and often, carrying a 29-14 lead into halftime against the Red and Blue. The Bulldogs’ attack was led by senior running back Tyler Varga and junior quarterback Morgan Roberts, who combined for Yale’s four touchdowns.
The Quakers took down perennial doormat Columbia on Saturday, snapping an eight-game losing streak that dated back to last year and saving their season from descending into chaos.
Their reward? A date with the top offense in the Ivy League
