NEW HAVEN, Conn. - The No. 4 Bulldogs will travel to Princeton, N.J., on Saturday to face the No. 7 Tigers in a 12 p.m. Ivy League match-up.

The Bulldogs (8-2, 2-1 Ivy) have not played since Jan. 20, when the team fell to No. 2 Trinity 5-4 in a heartbreaking loss. 

Princeton (3-2, 2-1 Ivy) was defeated in its most recent match, a 6-3 loss to the No. 3 University of Pennsylvania.  Princeton's first loss of the season came against the No. 6 Stanford Cardinal. 

In the preseason Ivy Scrimmages, Yale defeated Princeton 7-2.  However, both teams will look significantly different on Saturday than they did during their scrimmage match on Nov. 7.  With only four regular-season matches remaining, the Bulldogs will look to play their best squash heading toward the Howe Cup.
