The Yale Bulldogs are the 19th team in our 2020 men’s college lacrosse schedule preview series and the third team from the Ivy League. Yale finished 15-4 overall in 2019 and 5-1 in Ivy League play. Despite falling short against Penn in the Ivy League Championship game, the Bulldogs went to their second straight national championship game where they lost to Virginia on Memorial Day.
