Cornell goes for 1st winning Ivy record in 12 years in season finale at Penn

Heartbreakingly eliminated from Ivy League title contention, Cornell football head coach David Archer ’05 leads a team still with plenty to play for as it travels to Philadelphia to take on Penn in both teams’ season finales.

“We’re heartbroken over the results, to be quite honest, but I told the team on Monday, pick any reason you want,” Archer said in regards to motivation for this weekend. “Whether it’s to be 4-3 [for] the first time in 12 years, [to be] only the fifth team in league history to be picked last in the media polls and come back with a winning record, send the seniors out with a win, win the Trustee’s Cup or … count this as the first game of 2018.”

In the final game for the team’s seniors — Archer’s first full recruiting class — there is increased motivation to end on a high note.
