Check out Chris’ breakdown of Yale’s 2020 calendar.

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.

In the past two seasons, Villanova has won overtime thrillers in Dallas and in New Haven. Perhaps a change in scenery will help the Bulldogs this time around?

In the Association’s continuing efforts to support college athletes, the NCAA’s top governing board voted unanimously to permit students participating in athletics the opportunity to benefit from the use of their name, image and likeness in a manner consistent with the collegiate model.
