Penn, Brown Both Looking to Extend Winning Streaks. Someone Has To Lose.

The University of Pennsylvania Quakers will travel to Providence, R.I to take on the University of Brown Bears on Halloween. Kickoff of the game is scheduled to be at 12:30 p.m. ET.

Penn is coming off of a 34-20 win over Yale. In the win, the Quakers gave up the first 10 points to the Bulldogs, but their dominant team scored 34 of the final 44 points. The win against Yale was their second in a row after they dropped two straight.

On the other side of the ball, Brown is coming off of a 44-24 win where junior tailback Johnny Pena scored four touchdowns at Cornell. Quarterback Marcus Fuller threw for 246 yards in the first half alone in the game and Brown’s halftime lead was 34-10. They were a dominant team all throughout.

In the last meeting between Brown and Penn, The Bears upset the Quakers homecoming game by winning at Franklin Field by a score of 21-13. That was one of eight losses for the Quakers on the season as they finished the season with a 2-8 record. This season, they have already turned it around, winning three games before Halloween.

Brown is currently riding a four-game win streak, winning by an average of just 9.5 points per game, including a 25-24 win against Holy Cross on Oct. 10. So while Brown has won four games in a row, they haven’t won by comfortable margins. They are still going to be looking to finish a perfect 5-0 in the month of October against the Quakers.

Penn is riding a two game winning streak in which they have won by an average of 24.5 points per game, including a 42-7 win over Columbia on Oct. 17.

Looking at the average margin of victories for each team, it can be determined that if Penn plays the way they have been playing the way they have over the past couple of games, and if they can avoid a four-touchdown performance from Pena, Penn can avenge last year’s homecoming loss to Brown and win this won by two scores.
