With the cost-efficiency of streaming, Cornell Athletics are able to give their loyal Big Red fans events like field hockey and soccer, which are often overlooked by major sports networks seeking to draw bigger audiences for their advertisers. Cornell also delivers Big Red games directly to their alumni and other fans that are passionate about following their teams through Facebook Live. On busy game days, Cornell Athletics often sends multiple video crews across the campus to cover six or seven simultaneous events, including football, basketball, ice hockey, soccer, volleyball, wresting and field hockey. These components needed to be set-up and integrated on-site before they could be used in a unified live production workflow. It does this by pre-loading Wirecast—along with qualified external third-party devices, like video capture cards built for the rigors of live streaming—onto a Windows 10 Pro appliance.
Cornell came right back to snatch the lead with its first score. The Big Red were methodical, taking nearly eight minutes off the clock while running 16 plays to cover 75 yards.
Cornell had another chance to put points on the board to end the half, but Farrell intercepted Banks' Hail Mary pass in the end zone and the teams went to the locker rooms with the Big Red up, Penn scored the first points in the second half.
On their opening drive, the Quakers took advantage of a targeting penalty—one of two on the night against Cornell—which turned a potential fourth-down decision into a first down in Cornell territory.
From there, the ground game was on display as Penn used funky formations to cover the drive's final 45 yards. Cornell tried to respond, driving all the way down to Penn's yard line. However, that was as far as the Big Red got, and it was for naught as Zach Mays missed a potential game-tying field goal from 39 yards.
Instead, Penn made it a two-score game with another punishing drive, this one covering 78 yards.
Glover went 4-of-5 passing for 52 yards on the drive and found Christian Pearson on a skinny post route for the scoring play.
Pearson had a nice effort on the play, as the throw was a little high and behind him but he was able to go up and get it before falling into the end zone for a lead. Nick Robinson under center and Willows beside him the Quakers did a great job of burning the clock while also marching down the field.
Penn used 13 plays and nearly eight minutes of game clock to cover 54 yards, driving to Cornell's yard line before a yard Soslow field goal made the score With the clock now a factor, Cornell's next drive looked like it would end quickly.
However, a roughing-the-passer call on an incomplete fourth-down pass gave the Big Red life. It looked like they had taken advantage by scoring a touchdown shortly after that, but a holding call nullified a TD pass.
That seemed to take the wind out of Cornell's sails, and the Big Red lost the ball on downs at Penn's yard line. Penn went three-and-out and Cornell used all three of its timeouts to keep this game alive, but Conor O'Brien put it to rest with left when he intercepted Banks just outside the end zone.
Penn is back at home one final time this season, hosting Harvard on Homecoming Weekend next Saturday at 1 p.
