It's the ninth conference title under Al Bagnoli in his 21 years in charge at Penn. Alone at the top of the conference at 5-1 in Ivy League play, the Quakers will have a chance to clinch an outright title next week in their season finale against Cornell.
The Crimson were expected to win the title after going 7-0 in conference play last season, but they entered the game against the Quakers tied at 5-1 in conference with Penn. Ragone put the team in front with two passing touchdowns and 95 yards on the ground, but suffered a bad ankle injury on the last play of the third quarter. Backup Andrew Holland tossed an 18-yard touchdown to Mitchell King - his only completion of the day - to finish a drive and put the team up two scores with less than a quarter remaining. Harvard tried to rally, but then came three straight sacks, including a safety, on the Crimson's desperation drive with two minutes left, sealing a 30-21 victory for Penn.
