The University of Pennsylvania football team jumped out to a quick 14-0 lead and never fell behind, defeating Cornell 45-15 Saturday at Schoellkopf Field to claim the 2000 Ivy League championship.

The Big Red (5-5, 5-2 Ivy) was gunning for its first outright Ivy title in school history, but could not stop the potent Penn offensive attack, which was spearheaded by quarterback Gavin Hoffman. The Quakers finished their season at 6-1 in the league and 7-3 overall.

Cornell last won a share for the Ivy crown in football in 1990.
