Harvard Quotes

“It’s great to beat Penn because they have set the standard for the last two decades home and away. We knew that when we came in to the league in 1994 that if we were going to be a championship caliber program we would be playing some big games against Penn.” - Tim Murphy

“We really improved our run defense all year. And we knew again if we were able to stop Penn’s running game and force them in to a passing game with a younger quarterback that would give us an advantage.” – Bobby Everett
