Penn QB Billy Ragone is hoping to lead the Quakers to a third straight Ivy League championship.
Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - If there's any doubt Ivy League football is full of prime-time players and teams this season, consider this:
Each of the eight teams will play at night this season as the Ancient Eight gets a boost from the energy and enthusiastic that go with, well, Saturday Night Lights.
Two-time defending champion Penn leads the way with four 6 p.m. games to open its season. Brown and Princeton will play three times under the lights. Dartmouth will play in its first-ever night game.
Most of the games will occur in the first half of the season when colder weather in the Northeast likely isn't as much of a factor. Often the home team is matched against an opponent with a relatively short travel distance.
The change in scheduling likely couldn't occur in a better year. continue>>
