Dartmouth Set for Ivy Opener

Posted: Updated:

Coming of a road win at Holy Cross Saturday, the 2-0 Dartmouth Football team plays it's Ivy League opener on Friday night against Penn at Memorial Field. Dartmouth, Penn and Harvard all tied for the Conference championship last season. Penn's only loss of 2015 came at the hands of Dartmouth, 41-20 at Franklin Field. The Quakers come into this one 0-2, but are still a dangerous team led by quarterback Alek Torgersen and his top receiver, Justin Watson.

"They've got an outstanding quarterback," said Big Green head coach Buddy Teevens. "He protects the ball well and throws it all over the lot and is real effective. So, it's certainly a challenge for us as a football team in general."

"We are not sleeping on them at all, just because their record says they are 0-2," said defensive back Darius George. "We know they played really good teams and we know what's they're capable of. We know what we have to do and it's a very important game for us, so we've got to do our best to shut them down."

Dartmouth and Penn kickoff at 7 p.m. Friday night in Hanover.
