For the University of Pennsylvania Quakers football team, their game vs Yale is a special one because this weekend is Family Weekend at Penn. Penn is 2-3 on the season, and has yet to win a game at Franklin Field (0-2 home).

For Yale, this is the first game being played under Friday Night Lights. This is also their first Ivy League game of the season. They will play Ivy League teams from here on out.

Despite having three losses, the Quakers have stuck around in their three defeats, their biggest loss coming by only 21 points (42-21 at Lehigh, 41-20 vs Dartmouth) while their biggest margin of victory came last week in a 42-7 road win against Columbia.

Penn will also be looking to avenge last season’s loss at Yale, where they allowed 605 total yards of offense and 28 first downs, as well as four touchdown passes from Yale quarterback Morgan Roberts. The four scores were to three different receivers.

The Quakers, however, are coming off their biggest win since 2010. They scored the final 42 points of the game against Columbia after they scored the first points of the game. The Penn offense forced six turnovers and Ivy League Rookie of the Week Christian Pearson caught 10 passes, which is a new Penn freshman record.

This will be the first nationally televised game for the Quakers as the game can be seen on NBC Sports Network (NBCSN). This will be Penn’s final home game before they host Princeton for their homecoming game on Nov. 7.
