Two top ten football teams collide this Saturday when the Nebraska Cornhuskers travel to Columbus to take on the Ohio State Buckeyes in primetime. Although that lede might appear to be misplaced in a fencing article, the all-important Big Ten showdown is the reason the Elite Invitational returns to Penn for the second consecutive year instead of alternating to Ohio State.

An Israeli-born fencer, a Canadian and an Ivy champion walk into a bar. And they’re all Shaul Gordon. The journey for one of Penn men’s fencing captains is far from usual, as the son of an Italian mother, the Israeli-born fencer now calls Richmond, British Columbia, his home.

The final tune-up before the battle for the Ivy League saw Penn pitted against some of the best the rest of the nation has to offer. The Red and Blue trekked to South Bend, Ind., on Saturday to compete in the Northwestern Duals. On the men's side, the No. 3 Quakers dominated, going 5-0.

Oh the weather outside is frightful ... and it is apparently a bit too frightful for the Philadelphia Invitational that Penn Fencing was scheduled to host throughout Saturday and Sunday.

“QUAKER. OATS.” That is the conclusion to the Penn men's fencing squad's team cheer. Perhaps an unusual way to bring the hype, but the Red and Blue (10-1) are shaping up to be anything but ordinary this season.
