Yale crew up for busy weekend
Yale will face top-ranked Princeton as racign begins at 8 a.m. No. 10 Ohio State is also in the field.
The Bulldogs won four races in last weekend against Dartmouth and Boston University with the closest margin of victory seven seconds.
"Both Princeton and Ohio State are ranked above us, so this will be a hard race," said Yale head coach Will Porter. "This is what it is all about - racing fast crews and trying to do our best. I saw Princeton last week in Boston, and they are awesome. It is hard to imagine anyone in the country being within a length of them."
Princeton won the Eisenberg Cup last year, finishing four seconds ahead of the Bulldogs. Yale, though, rebounded to edge the Tigers at Eastern Sprints.
Ohio State will be making its first road trip of the season, though it owns wins over Top-15 programs Clemson and Michigan.
