I would bet Princeton's Pass Defense is at best middle of League even without checking. So to shutout the best QB / WR combo in the league is either impressive on Tigers part or extremely perplexing on the Quakers half.

And really this whole season Penn has underachieved with the offensive talent they have.

Is it Torgerson's injuries or stagnant game plans?

Statistically speaking, PU's pass defense is #6 but only 8 yards per game worse than Harvard (#4). Plus, when you have the significantly best running defense (again, statistically), an offense that has generally out-possessed opppnents, and have been ahead most of the games, you expect opponents to be passing more than usual.

Every ivy team they have played has a lower yds/attempt and yards/completion against PU than their season average (disclaimer - did not adjust for OOC or OT games), sole exception being Columbia yds/ attempt.

Having pointed this out, I will venture that most PU fans still hold their breath when facing a good passing game.
