NEW HAVEN, Conn.—The Bulldogs are on home turf this weekend after a lengthy series of consecutive away matches. Coming off a two-win streak, the No. 8 Yale men's squash team will take on No. 10 Princeton on Saturday before setting up again to see No. 6 Penn on Sunday.

The Princeton Tigers (2-5, 0-2 Ivy League) have had a rocky season so far as they have not won a match since November. The Tigers are seventh in the Ivy League standings after suffering losses to both Dartmouth and Harvard this month. Yale (5-5, 2-1 Ivy League), tied for third in the league, should have a good opportunity to come away with their first win at the Brady Squash Center in Payne Whitney Gymnasium since their string of away competitions.
 
The University of Pennsylvania Quakers (6-4, 2-1 Ivy League) are fourth in the Ivy League standings and have won conference matches against Dartmouth and Princeton, but fell to Harvard.
 
Success this weekend will put the Bulldogs in good standing to challenge Harvard and Columbia, who sit in a tie for first in the Ivy League, for a piece of the Ivy title.
 
Play will begin at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday and 12:00 p.m. on Sunday. Both matches will be held at the Brady Squash Center in Payne Whitney Gymnasium.
