Penn vs Columbia 2012: Ivy League rivlals meet in Philadelphia

Penn has beaten Columbia in 15 consecutive meetings.

The Pennsylvania Quakers will look to continue their dominance of the Columbia Lions. Penn hasn't lost to Columbia since 1996.

Penn, Ivy League champion in 2009 and 2010, is 1-0 in conference play so far this season. But the Quakers have lost their three non-conference games to Lafayette, Lehigh, and William & Mary. Despite a 1-3 overall record, Penn has showed a solid passing attack so far.

Columbia figures to once again be one of the worst teams in the Ivy League. In their only conference game so far, the Lions fell to the Princeton Tigers, 33-6. Columbia is currently last in the Ivy League in scoring, averaging a meager 10.8 points per game.

Penn is expected by most to win big, but you never know in the Ivy League. A loss would probably erase any chances of Penn winning the conference.

The game will commence at 1 p.m. PT at Franklin Field in Philadelphia.
