Tim Murphy and Penn

"It always comes down to Penn." Harvard head coach Tim Murphy has said this in the past about the yearly matchup between the Crimson and the Penn Quakers. Murphy made a point of saying in this week's interview with WHRB that Penn is usually the team that the Crimson have to knock off every year if they want to win the Ivy League. It is true that recent Ivy League history shows that the Ancient Eight champions reside in either Cambridge or Philadelphia more often than not: in the 16 previous years in which Coach Murphy has coached the Crimson, either Harvard or Penn has won or shared the Ivy title 11 times (6 Penn, 5 Harvard). Penn is the only Ivy team that Murphy's teams have not dominated.

Here are Coach Tim Murphy's records against Ivy Opponents

Team Harvard's Record under Murphy
Brown 10-7
Columbia 13-4
Cornell 11-6
Dartmouth 14-3
Penn 6-10
Princeton 13-4
Yale 11-5
