As of now, Yale and Harvard sit atop the conference with 1-0 records in the Ancient Eight, while Dartmouth, Penn, Princeton, and Columbia all are 2-0, but have yet to start conference play. Brown and Cornell currently sit in last place, each with 0-1 conference records. 
09/24/17 8:37pm
On Saturday against Lehigh, sophomore running back Karekin Brooks dominated with 268 rushing yards and four total touchdowns to carry Penn to its 65-47 victory. His 268 yards might have not been quite enough to break Penn’s all-time record of 272, but it was enough to earn him the honor of DP Sports’ Player of the Week.
09/24/17 8:26pm
Even though Penn sprint football’s offense did not score as much as it did against Caldwell, the defense turned in another strong performance, holding Chestnut Hill to seven points in a 20-7 win on Friday night.
09/24/17 7:48pm
A hard-fought match ended in defeat for Penn men's soccer, who came into Saturday's game against Drexel seeking their second win of the season. Although the outcome of a 2-1 loss may have been disappointing, the game provided the youthful Quakers something more valuable: experience. 
09/23/17 5:00pm
Penn football toppled Lehigh on Saturday afternoon in a thrilling shootout victory, scoring nine touchdowns en route to its second win of the season, 65-47 — the most the Quakers have scored since 1946. The 112 total points scored were the most in a Penn game ever.

09/21/17 12:08am
On June 26, Jason Calhoun was named Penn's next men's golf coach. This is the fourth time he has worked at the same university as his wife, Penn Athletic Director M. Grace Calhoun.

SWAMIS week two is here, and with it comes all the predictions and spice you need for week two of Penn football.
09/20/17 10:20pm
During its back-to-back Ivy League title campaigns, Penn football had an answer for nearly every opponent in its path. But the Quakers couldn't solve the Lehigh Mountain Hawks. On Saturday, the two squads will face off again with redemption on the line for the Red and Blue against the defending Patriot League champions.
09/20/17 9:48pm
Quarterback is not the only place where the Red and Blue need their “next-man-up” mentality to pay off. Both the offensive line and the secondary have some drastic overhaul from one year to another, and these groups will play just as pivotal roles in determining if coach Ray Priore’s squad can make history.
09/18/17 8:20pm
The men’s team finished first and the women’s team finished second in their respective fields of five teams. Competing along with Penn were Villanova, Haverford, Lehigh and Swarthmore. 
09/18/17 5:54pm
Under the lights of Rhodes Field, the Quakers (1-4) had no trouble finding the back of the net this time around, striking first in the 15th minute on senior Joe Swenson’s deft far-post finish of a blocked shot.
09/17/17 9:57pm
The Quakers' star senior wide receiver helped save Penn's skin in his team's 42-24 defeat of the Division II visitors who gave the hosts more trouble than expected. His performance outshone all others throughout Penn Athletics over the weekend, earning him DP Sports' Player of the Week.
09/17/17 8:29pm
Sophomore quarterback Eddie Jenkins looked more than comfortabe replacing two-time CSFL MVP Mike McCurdy, gashing Caldwell for 85 yards and one touchdown on the ground and 191 yards and three touchdowns through the air.
09/17/17 8:11pm
For Nwokedi, Houston is more than just her hometown. It’s a part of her, and because of that, she knew that she had to take action. 
09/17/17 7:57pm
In reality, the game should not be used as a barometer — the Red and Blue were facing off against a winless Division II team. Drawing conclusions from the matchup would be like judging your guitar skills based on a couple rounds of Rock Band (on easy mode).
09/16/17 5:16pm
Penn football hasn’t won its season-opener in three straight years, and at halftime, it looked like the Quakers were on their way to four. The second half was a completely different story, though. 
09/16/17 2:27pm
Penn football hasn’t won a season-opener in three straight years, and if things keep going the same way, it could be four. And this one would be the most painful of them all. At halftime, Penn (0-0) trails Division II’s Ohio Dominican 10-7 (0-2).

SWAMIS! A tradition as old as the Earth itself. And now, for the first time, you can experience it online. Click at your own peril. 
09/13/17 10:18pm
It would be silly to say that the Red and Blue aren’t championship contenders, but there is an extreme danger with using these past two seasons as a benchmark for the upcoming one.
09/13/17 10:12pm
The Quakers have two straight co-Ivy League titles thanks in large part to a dependable defense with Vecchio on the front line. But with former QB Alek Torgersen now in the NFL, the defense will have to step up as an even more dominant unit.
09/13/17 9:55pm
In the past few seasons, Penn football has had some high-profile offensive stars. Players like Torgersen, Watson and Solomon get all the attention for the unit's repeated success. But the unsung heroes of the offense are ones who never get noticed, the ones who grind it out each and every play so that their teammates can go on to make the highlight reel plays — the linemen.
09/13/17 9:52pm
Year after year, Penn’s Southern California recruiting pipeline has grown larger and larger, and this coming season will be no exception. With 16 SoCal natives on their 2017 roster — as many as Penn has from any non-California state — the Quakers are locked and loaded with supreme talent from across the country as they embark on their three-peat attempt.
09/13/17 9:51pm
The arc of the program is bending towards progress, and it’s not hard to see. 
09/13/17 9:35pm
Running back by day, memelord by night. Tre Solomon is a football star, an OUP squirrel catcher, and so much more.
09/13/17 9:35pm
Following the graduation of quarterback Alek Torgersen — a two-time first-team All-Ivy selection and Penn’s all-time leader in touchdown passes — the Quakers, for the first time in coach Ray Priore's tenure, have faced an offseason of uncertainty behind center.
09/13/17 9:28pm
Anyone who has spent time around our team over the past two years has heard that word. But to us, it is more than a word. It is what we believe in. It is what drives us. It is what takes more than 100 players and over 20 staff members from so many different backgrounds and bands us together for a four-month journey each fall.
09/13/17 9:24pm
Priore, who spent 28 years as an assistant at Penn before taking over when Al Bagnoli retired after the 2014 season, has joined an exclusive club and will try again to match what became Crouthamel’s three championships in his first three seasons of head coaching.
09/13/17 9:15pm
The Quakers (0-3), will have two more opportunities to finally get into the win column this week, first against Lehigh on Thursday, and again on Sunday against Southern Illinois Edwardsville.
09/13/17 9:11pm
Watson, the senior receiver out of Bridgeville, Pennsylvania, is more than just a cookie cutter wideout. He’s a playmaker and an offensive weapon who can get the job done in a variety of roles.
09/13/17 9:08pm
Despite the graduation of some of their best runners, the Penn men’s and women’s cross country teams got off to a scorching hot start at the Rider Invitational. To the outsider, this would seem like a surprisingly dominant result. To senior Chris Luciano, it was anything but.
09/13/17 9:06pm
Football is back at Franklin Field.
09/12/17 6:38pm
Welcome to sprint football, Caldwell University. In Caldwell’s first ever Collegiate Sprint Football League (CSFL)  game — or football game, period, for that matter — the Cougars will take on none other than Penn, the CSFL’s defending champion. 
09/10/17 11:16pm

09/09/17 5:19pm
The current Quaker squad walloped a team of alumni by the score of 31-14 in the annual Alumni Weekend showdown this Saturday. The game was followed by a BBQ for friends and family to cap a weekend of celebration for Quakers past and present.
09/06/17 11:16pm
It all starts with Jerel Blades. The winger is on the small side — only 5-foot-7 — but he doesn’t let that affect him. After all, the defense has to catch him first.
09/06/17 10:22pm
Joe Swenson, Austin Kuhn and captain Sam Wancowicz are the team’s three elder statesmen, and while having this few seniors on a roster seems unusual, the Quakers are no stranger to having a youth-saturated team—you need only look to the 2016 roster to find the last time there were only three seniors. 
09/06/17 9:55pm
DP Sports released its Soccer Issue on Thursday, previewing the season ahead and the matchups on tap this weekend. But what about the rest of Penn Athletics? Here's what the other squads who don the Red and Blue will be up to over the next few days:
09/06/17 9:26pm
One player who looked particularly fit and sharp at the start of the season was sophomore winger Dami Omitaomu. While many of the team plied their trade at local soccer clubs across the country, from New Hampshire to California, Omitaomu’s summer situation stood out for several reasons.
09/06/17 9:13pm
After losing their first two matches of the season 0-2 to Monmouth and Bowling Green last weekend, Penn men’s soccer will look to rebound this Sunday at home against Seton Hall.
09/06/17 8:48pm
This year, the Quakers brought in 11 new players — almost half of the 28-man roster.  With the greater size, this year’s freshman class will also be expected to play a bigger role on the team than freshmen of years past. 
09/04/17 9:22pm
Two narrow losses provided a somber start to Penn men’s soccer’s season, with a pair of 2-0 defeats at the hands of Monmouth and Bowling Green frustrating the Quakers over the weekend.
09/04/17 9:18pm
The men, on their way to a dominant first-place finish, packed a remarkable nine runners into the the top ten spots. Leading the charge was senior captain Christopher Luciano, whose 15:24.79 was just milliseconds behind the event’s top finisher, Zachary Michon from St. Joseph’s.  
09/04/17 9:05pm
In a span of only a couple of days, former Quaker star Alek Torgersen’s NFL dreams were dashed, and — just as suddenly — resurrected.
08/30/17 9:10pm
The Penn Cross Country program has never been more successful than it was in 2016. So much so that Coach Steve Dolan said that their accomplishments “raised the bar in terms of what’s possible.” While the team has entirely new leaders this season, the mindset remains the same: the Quakers are the team to beat in the Ivy League.
08/30/17 9:08pm
Now with a couple of weeks of practice under its belt, the team will kick off its season on Friday night with a trip to Monmouth in New Jersey, before they come home to open things up at Rhodes Field on Sunday against Bowling Green.
08/30/17 8:59pm
While the 82-year-old spent much of his career at Villanova, he was no stranger to Penn. The season before he took the helm with the Wildcats, Massimino was actually an assistant coach for the Quakers.
