(02/03/24 4:54am)

Penn men’s basketball entered its Friday matchup against Brown desperate to get its season back on track after dropping three straight Ivy League games. Despite this streak of losses, the Quakers still entered the weekend tied for fourth in the Ivy League, with four other teams knotted at 1-3. And yet, it was more of the same for the crestfallen Quakers.

Former Alabama quarterback Julian Sayin draws interest from Penn

(01/31/24 3:16am)

Major shockwaves reverberated through the college football world when legendary Alabama head coach Nick Saban announced his retirement after a 17-year period of dominance over the sport in which the Crimson Tide won six national championships. Following Saban’s decision to retire, current Alabama players have a 30-day window to potentially transfer to another institution to continue their college careers. Though transferring was made more difficult due to the timing of Saban’s decision, which was at the start of classes for most universities, many players still opted to enter the portal. Among those players was true freshman quarterback Julian Sayin, the younger brother of Penn’s star signal-caller Aidan Sayin.

Last November, 7-2 Penn football made the 45-minute trek north to face its bitter rivals, 8-1 Princeton, as 14.5-point underdogs. The Red and Blue had just suffered a sizable defeat to Harvard at home, all but ending their Ivy League Title hopes. Princeton, on the other hand, was seeking to capture its third Ancient Eight crown in four seasons. Despite the spread and pregame predictions, Penn proved to be no pushover, playing for its pride as the team marched 72 yards down the field to score a game-winning touchdown. Although the Quakers themselves could not secure a piece of the Ivy Title, as Yale defeated Harvard the same day, they found their joy in preventing their archenemy from having one, too.

Moment of the Year: Football's game-winning touchdown at Princeton

(04/27/23 5:37am)

Coming off a disappointing home loss to Harvard the week prior, Penn football headed to New Jersey to face an 8-1 Princeton team as a 14-point road underdog. From the jump, the game played out like many experts predicted it would — Princeton drove 78 yards down the field to score a touchdown, forced a punt, and drove down another 80 yards to take an early two-score lead. Penn's offense couldn't muster much, but a blocked-punt touchdown made the score 12-7 going into halftime.
