The Columbia Lions notched their largest homecoming victory ever this past fall, trouncing the Penn Quakers 44–6 at Robert K. Kraft Field on October 19. Led by sophomore quarterback Ty Lenhart, who threw for 158 yards and rushed for ninety-five more, the Lions were dominant from the start, scoring forty-four unanswered points before the Quakers finally put a touchdown on the board in the fourth quarter. “We picked a good time to play our best football of the year,” said Columbia head coach Al Bagnoli. “I’m happy for our players, happy for the program … We’ll use this as a springboard to just keep pushing it forward and keep improving.”
