We feature a classic Ivy League Football rivalry played on Thanksgiving day, Cornell vs. Penn. The Quakers v. The Big Red is one of the Ivy League’s oldest rivalries. Cornell has played Penn every year since 1893 and traditionally play their final game against each other on Thanksgiving Day.

The games have been played every year (except 1918 due to the war) at Franklin Field in Philadelphia since it has more predictable weather at that time of year than Ithaca.
