Penn men’s soccer can win Ivy League title, secure NCAA bid against Princeton on Saturday

Penn visits Princeton at 4 p.m. on Saturday with an Ivy League title and automatic bid into the NCAA tournament on the line

Penn Athletics

A result for the University of Penn men’s soccer team on Saturday would see the Quakers win at least a share of the Ivy League title and earn an automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2013.

Penn (11-2-2) is currently two points above Cornell in the Ivy League standings and would get the automatic bid in the case of a tie because they beat the Big Red earlier this season. A win would secure an outright title regardless of how Cornell does at home against Columbia. That game also kicks off at 4 p.m.

Penn last won the Ivy League title in 2013 when they went 5-1-1 in conference play and 8-8-2 overall. They hosted Providence at Rhodes Field in the NCAA Tournament and fell on PKs after a 1-1 draw.

Other previous Ivy League titles for the program came in 1955, 1962, 1971, 1972, 1980, 2002 and 2008.

The Quakers are all but guaranteed a berth in the NCAA Tournament even if they slip up on Saturday. They are currently ranked No. 23 in the coaches poll and are No. 15 in RPI.
