The 1878 Penn Rugby team. There are 15 players and 1 coach. Until the mid 1880s the teams of what would become known as Ivy League played per Rugby Union rules.
In a nail-biter at Baker Field, Columbia scored with a minute left in the game to pull out a dramatic, one-point victory over Princeton. After trailing 25-12 at the half, Princeton roared back with three unanswered tries to take a 29-25 lead before the Lions dotted down in the corner to seal the win.
After a slightly delayed KO due to some heavy Northeast traffic, the final match of the fall for either team saw Harvard face Yale in New Haven. A tightly-contested first half left the score 7-5 in the Crimson's favor at the break. Harvard pulled away in the second half with three tries. A final Yale try from Evan Brown near the end was not enough as the visitors walked off with a 24-12 victory.
Penn plays Columbia to a 17-17 tie.
Final score 86-10, great win for the Tigers today. Wonderful having so many of our alumni here to support!
