The voting media made a big mistake believing Penn's losses on defense in the offseason would be too great to overcome. The Quakers will win the Ivy title this year because of their improved offense.
The Quakers’ triumph over Columbia vaulted them to No. 20 in the Sports Network/Fathead.com media poll — Penn's highest ranking since 2004.
Al Bagnoli likes to take things slow — on the football field, that is. That’s exactly what the Quakers did against Columbia, using a relentless running game to keep control of the ball and the clock.
Penn improves to 4-1, keeping Columbia winless against the Quakers for the 14th straight season.
Columbia has not defeated the Quakers once over the last 14 seasons and has suffered six straight defeats at Franklin Field dating back to 1995.
In reality, we have learned little about this year’s Penn football squad so far.
It seems detrimental to the Quakers to continue splitting quarterback time.
Penn pulled away late, 31-10, in Lewisburg, Pa. Coach Al Bagnoli became the winningest coach in program history, senior Andrew Samson broke a career record and David Wurst had a career day.
Football coach Al Bagnoli can make history Saturday as he tries for his 125th win at Penn — a victory would make Bagnoli the winningest coach in Quakers football history.
The initiative taken by the Class of 2013 is one of the primary reasons that the Quakers have mostly picked up right where they left off.
On a good day, it's as if long snapper Ed Kispert had never stepped foot on Franklin Field, but on a bad day, someone might remember his name.
Penn and Columbia football players racked up a series of career highs during Saturday’s victories over Dartmouth and Princeton, respectively.
On a team expected to rely heavily upon its stable of running backs to keep a hard-nosed rush attack afloat, quarterback Billy Ragone’s legs — even more than his arm — are providing a breath of fresh air.
Penn got its first dogfight from a new and improved Dartmouth team that nearly pulled off a major upset. It was a game that should set off alarms in the minds of each of those 100-plus Quakers.
A big defensive stop and an 83-yard touchdown pass keyed the undefeated Quakers' remarkable 24-14 victory.
The Big Green came back late, but the Quakers bounced back to win, 35-28, in the Ivy opener.
In advance of Penn's Ivy opener against Dartmouth, a graphic of the Quakers' 9-1 record against the Big Green over the last decade, along with a five-point forecast for Saturday's game.
After a winless 2008 and only two victories in 2009, the Big Green have turned a new leaf, knocking off Bucknell 43-20 and squeezing out a win at home against Sacred Heart last week.
Former QB Kyle Olson — who led Penn to an Ivy League title last season in his final year of eligibility — is now serving as a student assistant coach.
With QB Keiffer Garton still sidelined and RB Lyle Marsh done for the year, Al Bagnoli is looking for roster depth to be his team’s biggest asset.
