Princeton is 8-0 in the Ivy League and has won 11 in a row, but every Ivy League road trip is challenging, and none more than Yale and Brown.

The Tigers will be looking for their first win at Yale since 2011 and, if Princeton completes that challenge, will be looking to complete a sweep of the Yale-Brown weekend in an odd-numbered year (when the Tigers go to Yale first, then Brown) for the first time since 2001.

All the links you'll need for this weekend's games are below and all the info to get you ready for the game is in the game notes, also below.

The PAAEC Tailgate will be located in Lot D.

Parking permits can be purchased in advance via Yale's athletics site, or in cash on game day at time of entry to Lot D ($5).
