The Penn football team announced its 2013 football schedule today. As with last season, there will three games against scholarship programs - and that includes the Patriot League this year. The incoming freshman class is the first in the conference's history that has access to merit-based aid.

Of more importance, though, is that the annual Penn-Villanova game will take place on the Main Line this time. It will be on September 28.

A week before that, Penn will open its season against Lafayette. There's also a trip to William & Mary on October 12. It comes seven days after the Quakers' first Ivy League contest, at home against Dartmouth.

Here's the full schedule. All games are on Saturdays (as they almost always are at Penn, though they've played at Princeton on a Friday in the past for national TV).

Times and TV/radio information will be announced later in the year.

September 28: at Villanova

October 19: at Columbia
