We break down the Penn game – and we give our fearless prediction, below the flip.

Last week, head coach Andy Coen made a big deal about the many changes Yale made to their approach on both offense and defense.  Penn will not have the same element of surprise this week – to some degree.

This year, though, to some degree the tables are turned.

With a full year under their belts – and an Ivy League championship year, at that – the Quakers will be not at all like the inexperienced bunch that Lehigh played last year.  They’ve had one year in the system, one year knowing the expectations, one year going through the drills.
