Football Receives Title Rings; Honored at Men's Basketball Game

PHILADELPHIA - Honored and recognized for their second straight undefeated league title at the men's basketball game against Cornell Saturday night, the University of Pennsylvania football team and staff received their 2010 Ivy League championship rings.

Joined by University President Amy Gutmann, the team was recognized at mid-court of The Palestra as the 2010 seniors hoisted the Ivy League championship trophy to a standing ovation from the crowd.

In a season where the Quakers celebrated the 800th win in program history, the 2010 Penn Football team claimed its second straight undefeated Ivy League championship. The Quakers became just the third team in Ivy League history to post back-to-back undefeated Ivy campaigns. Penn was ranked as high as No. 14 in the nation and currently holds a 15-game Ivy League winning streak. It’s the longest active streak in the country and the third-longest in Ivy history. In addition, 19-year head coach Al Bagnoli won his 125th game at Penn to become the winningest football coach in school history.

Penn will begin spring practice on March 15 with the 2011 Spring Game slated for 6 p.m. on April 9.
