Torgersen's 7-yard run put Penn up 7-0 with 9:28 left in the first quarter, and three minutes later he completed a 19-yard touchdown pass to Nicholas Bokun.

Jacob Dolegala put the Blue Devils on the board with a 62-yard pass to K.J. Smith early in the second. Ed Groth then added a 39-yard field goal to cut the deficit to 14-10.

But Torgersen completed a 29-yard score to Christian Pearson to make it 21-10 and the Quakers were never threatened. Pearson had 91 yards receiving for Penn (2-2).
