In this week's edition of Is Stat So?, both Penn and women's basketball saw key contributions from bench players, football struggled to hold onto the ball, and men's soccer finished its season the way it knows best.
Instead of featuring the strengths that Penn has developed during the latter part of the season, the Homecoming defeat highlighted the weaknesses that have plagued the Red and Blue throughout the year.
Penn football's seniors, as well as the rest of the team, suffered a 29-7 loss to the Crimson, who earned their first win in the series since 2014.
On the ensuing possession, Harvard kept the ball on the ground with sophomore running back Aaron Shampklin, who had 81 rushing yards on 14 attempts. Shampklin was elusive all half long, and currently leads the Ivy League in rushing.

In this week's edition of Is Stat So?, football comes from behind in the second half, a freshman wrestler makes a startling debut, and women's soccer takes away a great stat from a heartbreaking game.
This win was on the juniors and sophomores. And if they can play like they did here against Cornell over the final two weeks, they might just set themselves up for a title run next year.

In this week's edition of Is Stat So?, Karekin Brooks ran all over Brown's defense, women's soccer clinched a share of an Ivy title for the first time in nearly a decade, and men's soccer finally ended its winless streak.
He alone was more productive than the Bears’ offense at 195 yards, and his rushing efforts stand as sixth-best in a single game in program history.
With rain pouring down and the field a muddy swamp, Penn football took down Brown 13-7 in Providence, R.I. The Nor’easter had a huge effect on the game, causing both offenses to be both literally and figuratively stuck in the mud.
The Quakers (4-2, 1-2 Ivy) can continue climbing out of the bottom of the Ivy rankings with a win this weekend and a Cornell loss to Ivy-best Princeton. A defeat, however, would prove to be not only a probable goodbye to the Ancient Eight crown but also a devastating upset. The Bears (1-5, 0-3 Ivy) currently sit at the bottom of the conference standings amidst a struggle of a season.
In this week's edition of Is Stat So?, a pair of cousins dominated for sprint football, a month-long shutout streak came to an end, and Penn football failed to stop Yale's ground game.
Playing at home against a backup quarterback with all the momentum on their side, the potential comeback was all but scripted. But the opportunity, like the snap, went right over their heads.
Once the opening kickoff came for Penn football against Yale, almost everything that could do wrong did for the Red and Blue.
