The Penn Quakers are the 58th DI program to announce their 2020 men’s lacrosse schedule. The Quakers come into 2020 following a 2019 campaign in which they went 12-4 overall and 6-0 in the Ivy League.

Key Games

2/15 @ Maryland

Again, Penn will open the season with a road contest against Maryland. Last season, Penn was able to gain a one-goal lead in the fourth quarter but Maryland was able to secure the 13-12 overtime victory. 2020 should see another highly contested battle between these two. 

2/29 vs Penn State

Playing every year since 2015, these two in-state foes have had some battles over the years, including a 15-14 win for Penn State last season. Also, that loss to the Nittany Lions last season was Penn’s last before going on a 12-0 run. In last year’s contest, Penn took a 14-13 lead in the fourth but Nick Spillane rattled of two straight to secure the win for Penn State.

3/28 @ Yale

The best series of the year last year was the three Penn-Yale matchups that we got. Penn won the regular season, 13-12, in triple overtime and took down Yale again in the Ivy League championship game. Yale ended Penn’s season, winning 19-18 in overtime in the NCAA Quarterfinals. After the contest we saw last year between these two, this game could be just as interesting.
