Another Ivy League opponent, another victory. It was business as usual for Penn on Saturday at Franklin Field. The Quakers' 27-13 victory over Columbia was their 10th straight triumph against an Ancient Eight opponent. Penn (4-1, 2-0 league) beat Columbia (3-2, 1-1) for the 14th consecutive time. "You don't like to say that we are used to winning, but we are going all-out every game," said sophomore running back Brandon Colavita, whose team is ranked 25th in the Football Championship Subdivision.

Marc Holloway is smart enough to know football was his ticket. Of course, those same smarts were necessary when it came time for the West Catholic senior to commit to a college. Earlier this month, the 6-foot-1, 220-pound linebacker, a second-team all-Southeastern Pennsylvania selection by The Inquirer, gave Columbia an oral commitment. "I'm a good student," said Holloway, owner of a 4.0 GPA, "but I don't think I would have pursued schools with a tuition as high as the Ivys if it weren't for football.

The sky was overcast. The game was messy. Indeed, the only thing that shined yesterday was the Palmer Stadium scoreboard. Come the final screeching siren, the scoreboard said Princeton defeated Columbia, 22-6, but it didn't say how sloppily. The Tigers (6-1 overall, 3-1 in the Ivy League) posted some impressive numbers, gaining 385 yards on offense and holding Columbia (1-6, 1-2) to a mere 11 yards rushing - minus-3 in the second half - on defense. The Princeton defense also had eight sacks and held the Lions to one of 12 third-down conversions.

To win a key Ivy League game in February, Penn coach Jerome Allen turned to a play that has been on the board in his office since September. It worked. With 1.5 seconds left in overtime, Miles Cartwright looped an inbounds pass from the sideline to an open Fran Dougherty, who scored a layup in the lane to give Penn a 61-59 win over Columbia at the Palestra. The victory kept Penn (15-11, 7-2 Ivy League) on a track to play for a first-place tie in league play next Saturday at Harvard.

It is no mystery that Villanova was going to struggle early in the season. But when they struggled in past years, the Wildcats usually were deep enough to find someone to carry them past a team such as Columbia. However, the Lions found Tuesday night that an extra pass can get you an open three-point look against the Wildcats' defense, and that you can pack in a zone defense and dare Villanova's outside shooters to make a shot from beyond the arc. Columbia sank 11 three-point baskets while the Wildcats managed to hit just 3 of 17 attempts from deep, and that was a big part of the Lions' stunning 75-57 upset of Villanova at the Pavilion.

For most teams, playing Columbia is the next best thing to having a weekend off. The Lions, who have lost 27 straight, usually provide opponents with a rare opportunity to pad the stat sheet, rest the walking wounded and give the scrubs some prime-time exposure. But as far as Villanova is concerned, tomorrow afternoon's game in New York (Channel 57, 1:30) against the perennial Ivy League doormats represents a long-awaited measuring stick of sorts. The Wildcats, who have been feasting on a steady diet of Division III foes for the past 1 1/2 seasons, finally will get a chance to find out out how they stack up against a I-AA program.

Ray Priore finished his first spring as Penn's head football coach Saturday, but he's still having a little trouble letting go of his old job. "That's why I'm chewing gum," Priore said after Penn's annual Red vs. Blue spring football game at Franklin Field. The Albany alumnus, who replaced longtime coach Al Bagnoli in December, had been Penn's defensive coordinator since 1999. "You can tell he wants to get back out there and start coaching guys up," said quarterback Alek Torgersen.

For Jake Hoyle, 15th place just wouldn't do. "It was a huge disappointment," said the Philadelphia native and Columbia University junior, reflecting on his finish at the 2014 NCAA individual fencing championships. "It was one of those results that you put up in your locker to make you work harder during the year. " That hard work - mostly mental, according to Hoyle, 20 - paid off. Last month at the NCAA championships in Columbus, Ohio, Hoyle went 19-5 in his 24 bouts to win the men's epée title.

Mercifully, it's over. Winless since Feb. 6, the Penn Quakers, starting four freshman and junior Tony Hicks, halted their seven-game losing streak Friday with a 54-46 victory over Columbia at the Palestra. Penn never trailed in the game, mostly because they limited the Lions to one of the worst shooting halves seen on a collegiate basketball court in some time. The Lions scored just nine points in the first half, at one point going more than 13 minutes without a field goal. "I thought tonight that the guys competed at a high level," Allen, looking relieved, said following the team's first win in a month.

A MONTH AGO, Penn went to New York and lost to Columbia by 27. The Lions hit 15 threes and scored 83 points. Last night at the Palestra, the Quakers, starting four freshmen and junior 1,000-point scorer Tony Hicks, nearly pitched a first-half shutout against those same Lions, and won 54-46, their first win in a month, breaking a seven-game losing streak that began that night in New York. "When you can hold a Division I opponent to nine points in a half, then you're doing something right," Penn coach Jerome Allen said.

WHEN AL BAGNOLI decided to step down as coach after 23 seasons at Penn, where his teams won a record nine outright Ivy League football titles, he simply thought the time was right. It took him only 3 months to figure out he had miscalculated. "I still wanted something to do that was meaningful," he told the Daily News. Working in administration at Penn apparently wasn't cutting it. So now, he's opted to make another change, though cirumstances dictated that this one came about much more hastily.

NEW YORK - Before walking into the news conference Tuesday to announce that he would be Columbia's new football coach, Al Bagnoli spotted a Philadelphia reporter and asked, "What are you doing here?" The response to the former Penn football coach: "What are you doing here?" This was not a scene that anybody could have predicted, as Bagnoli acknowledges. Yet his return to coaching after 23 seasons as Penn's head coach is a story with Philadelphia roots. The road to Columbia began on the Main Line.

AL BAGNOLI'S retirement lasted 3 months. After last season he stepped down as the head coach at Penn following a 23-year run that included a record nine outright Ivy League titles. Now he's returning to take over the program that has long been regarded as one of the worst in college football. Tomorrow, Bagnoli, who celebrated his 62nd birthday last month, will be officially introduced as the new coach at Columbia, which hasn't had a winning season since 1996 and is currently riding a 21-game losing streak.
