Trustee Cup on the line as Penn visits Cornell

One of the oldest rivalries in college football will be renewed when Cornell and Penn battle for the Trustees’ Cup today at Schoellkopf Field on Saturday at 12:30 pm.Prior to the game, the Big Red will honor 24 seniors for their contributions to the football program before they take the field for the last time.Cornell will be attempting to finish at .500 or better for the second straight year, but Penn has its sights set even bigger. With a win, the Quakers would claim the outright Ivy League title after clinching at least a share with a 30-21 triumph over Harvard.Penn will also be looking to avenge last season’s 48-38 loss to the Big Red in the 2011 season finale, a game in which Cornell quarterback Jeff Mathews threw for an Ivy League record 548 yards and five touchdowns. It marked the only home loss by the Quaker seniors in their four-year career.It will be the 119th meeting between Cornell and Penn, marking the fifth-most played series in college football history.
