One more. That’s all that stands between Penn football and a record-tying 18th Ivy League title. No one else matters, no scoreboard watching is needed. One game is all that’s left.

In the movie business, sequels rarely hold up to the original. It’s tough enough to make one good movie, and even more difficult to make another one with the same cast of characters.

Penn football’s loss to Princeton on Saturday was, for lack of a better, less-ironic word, sobering.

From here on out, it’s win or go home. Following Penn football’s 28-0 loss on the road to Princeton, the Quakers (5-3, 4-1 Ivy) will have to win out in order to earn at least a share of the Ivy title for a second straight year.

If you were in attendance the last time Penn football and Princeton faced off, you couldn’t have asked for much more.
