Penn adds Bucknell and Sacred Heart, completes 2020 football schedule

By Kevin Kelley -

The Penn Quakers have added games against the Bucknell Bison and the Sacred Heart Pioneers, per their official website, which completes their football schedule for the 2020 season.

Penn will play six games at home at Franklin Field in Philadelphia, Pa., in 2020, beginning with consecutive contests against the Bucknell Bison on Sept. 19 and the Lafayette Leopards on Sept. 26.

The Quakers open Ivy League play on Oct. 3 on the road against the Dartmouth Big Green. Penn then returns home to host the Sacred Heart Pioneers on Oct. 10, which is their final non-conference game of the season.

Back-to-back Ivy League contests at Franklin Field are up next as the Columbia Lions visit on Oct. 17, and they are followed by the Yale Bulldogs on Oct. 24.

Penn then hits the road for consecutive road contests at the Brown Bears on Oct. 31 and at the Cornell Big Red on Nov. 7.

The Quakers’ final home game of the season is slated for Nov. 14 when the Harvard Crimson visit. Penn closes out the 2020 season the following week on the road against the Princeton Tigers on Nov. 21.
