After Penn football’s week two victory against fourth-ranked Villanova, my colleague Colin Henderson made a bold statement: The Quakers' win was no fluke. Five games into the season, with the Red and Blue sitting at 2-3 heading into Friday’s game against Yale, I still didn’t know what to make of that statement.

On to the next. Now that the dust has cleared, there’s not much more to say about Penn football’s win on Saturday.

It’s honestly hard to know what to make of Penn football after four games.

Two years ago, then-sophomore quarterback Dalyn Williams thought he had led Dartmouth to a seemingly improbable win over Penn.

Going into the 2015 Ivy League football season, I expected a few things: Penn would be better than its underachieving final year under Al Bagnoli.

It finally happened.

Villanova's star quarterback John Robertson didn’t play against the Quakers on Thursday night. And it just didn’t matter.

As a first year coach, there is reason to be nervous about a lot of things. But delivering a successful snap to the quarterback isn't necessarily one of them.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. — They are what we thought they were. Coming into its first game of the season, no one thought Penn football would be flawless.

Anyone who says numbers never lie didn’t watch Penn’s offense last season. A year ago, then-sophomore quarterback Alek Torgerson was near the top of not only the Ivy League, but the entire Football Championship Subdivision in multiple passing categories.
