The podcast is available on iTunes/Apple Podcasts, Google Play Music, and Spotify (a bit later in the day)! You can also listen/download today’s episode straight from Pod-O-Matic.

Episode Description: Winning is no birthright, and the Penn Quakers certainly showed that, as they were the first Big 5 team to topple the Villanova Wildcats since 2012, in their upset win over the ‘Cats, ending their record-high 25-straight wins. It wasn’t the greatest showing by any means—we unpack that game and the aftermath--which also wasn’t very good. Now, the Wildcats are prepping for their trip out to the Midwest, where they’ll take on Kansas, who has only lost twice to non-conference opponents over the last 10 years.
