The Crimson have recorded victories over Merrimack, Brown, Cornell, Howard, and Dartmouth, but dropped games against Holy Cross and Princeton. Games against Columbia at home on Nov. 5 and on the road at Penn on Nov. 12 await before the season-finale against Yale.

Yale is also 5-2 overall and 3-1 in Ivy League action this season. The Bulldogs have defeated Cornell, Howard, Dartmouth, Bucknell, and Columbia and lost to Holy Cross and Penn. Prior to the season-finale at Harvard, Yale will host Brown on Nov. 5 and Princeton on Nov. 12
