No. 9 Bulldogs Face No. 4 Texas, No. 7 Princeton

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Three of the nation's top-ranked crews meet on Saturday on Lake Carnegie in New Jersey. Yale, ranked ninth, races No. 4 Texas and No. 7 Princeton. The first race is set for 8:45 a.m. The varsity eights face off in the finale at 10:55 a.m. when Yale and Princeton will be competing for the Eisenburg Cup. ESPN+ has the video.

The Bulldogs are racing on Lake Carnegie for the second time this season. Yale faced Brown and then Penn and Columbia in the Ivy Invitational back on Apr. 7. The Bulldogs are coming off a sweep of Cornell last Saturday in their only home race of the spring.

Princeton hasn't raced anywhere but Lake Carnegie this spring. The Tigers' varsity eight is undefeated.

Texas's only competition of the spring thus far came at the San Diego Crew Classic two weeks ago. The Longhorns' varsity eight finished third in the grand final behind Cal and Washington.

Yale wraps up the regular season on Apr. 27, facing Harvard-Radcliffe and Northeastern on the Charles River in Boston.
