Liveblog — Penn football vs. Cornell

Will Penn football win its third outright Ivy League title in four years? It all comes down to today's season finale in Ithaca, N.Y., where senior quarterback Andrew Holland will make his first and only career start for the Quakers (5-4, 5-1 Ivy) in place of injured QB Billy Ragone. Opposing him will be Jeff Mathews of Cornell (4-5, 2-4), who set an Ancient Eight record for passing yards against the Red and Blue a season ago at Franklin Field. Sports Editor Mike Wisniewski and staff writer Steven Jaffe bring you the action live:

  2. Strangest Ivy Laague season EVER, but the Quakes come out on top at the end, anyway!

    Congrats to Al Bagnoli and the team for the well deserved championship. They did everything they had to do, especially today, and earned this victory and the Ivy trophy!

    On to basketball, and Go Quakers!

  3. PLEASE READ MY POST ADDRESSED TO THE PENN FOOTBALL NATION IN THE DP SPORTS SECTION UNDER "PENN FOOTBALL CLINCHES OUTRIGHT IVY TITLE". It think will give you more anticipation towards the start of the 2013 Penn Football Season. THE INCENTIVE IS THERE FOR A REPEAT. GO QUAKERS !!!!!

  4. @Ted, Penn Grad, FOJL et al - Per Ted's this being the "strangest Ivy season ever" - with which I totally agree; and prior to moving on to BB, I'd offer this has also been a season for some of the most substantive and objective DP reporting. So props to DP reporters, especially those who have been willing to look under the hood and report what they saw.

    Props also to posters this season for the most substantive contributions and discussions I can remember.

    Now on to BB and circle Saturday Feb 23 in NYC for the Columbia game. If any of you are heading this way, I'd be pleased to host you with glasses of "Palestra" wine prior to heading for the game. It's a very good Spanish wine, totally appropriate for the occasion, and wasn't available in Philadelphia last I looked. Contact me at ernie@catalyticgroup.com, and I'd welcome meeting any and all of you.

  5. @ERNIE
    Thank you so much for the invite.to Levien Gym on 2/23/12.
    I will be in Hawaii for the month of February. It is warmer than NYC that time of the year and my old bones need the sun.
    Cheer Penn to victory over the Lions for me.
    Stay healthy and have a great year.

  6. Thanks, Ernie - 2/23 at Columbia is a possibility. I'll see what I can do...Would love to join you for some Palestra wine, which I've never had. Can't guarantee anything at this point yet, but I will certainly try.

    I hope by then that the BB team is doing better than they are now...Looks like we are indeed going to need patience. Sounds like Jerome's lack of same, in getting assessed with a technical foul very late, cost the Quakers the game against Fordham tonight. Rough start at 1-4. I'll take a cue from this year's football season, however, and not get too concerned (yet). Happy Thanksgiving!
