Penn vs Harvard: Quakers clinch share of Ivy League title after win

Elsa

The Penn Quakers have a chance to win the Ivy League title outright after clinching at least a share of it this weekend with an upset win over last year's champion, the Harvard Crimson.

The Penn Quakers will win at least a share of the Ivy League title for the third time in four seasons after upsetting the title favorite Harvard Crimson despite an injury to quarterback Billy Ragone.

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.
