November 9 was always going to be a big day on 33rd Street. It just got a lot bigger.
We already know it's Homecoming weekend at Penn. So what's likely to be the season's biggest crowd will be on hand for the Quakers' football game against Princeton at 12 p.m.
There's also the men's basketball season opener against Temple at 5 p.m. As I noted when the Owls' non-conference schedule was published, It's the first time there has ever been a men's basketball game
Throw in field hockey (time TBA in the morning), the women's basketball season opener (2 p.m.) and a fairly big men's soccer game against Princeton (4 p.m.), and the day gets even busier.
