Princeton Doubleheader Today On ESPNU

If you live too far away from TigerBlog Headquarters to attend today's events, you can still see two pretty good ones on your television.

Princeton and Cornell meet in men's hockey at 4 p.m., followed at 7 p.m. by the 100th meeting between Princeton and Penn in football.

Both of those games will be live on ESPNU.

If you are coming to the hockey game, you can take your ticket stub to the football game and receive free admission.

TigerBlog will be providing updates during the football game.

In 1876, Princeton defeated Penn six goals to zero in the first football game between the schools.
That win ignited a 28-game win streak for the Tigers to open the series with its most local rival in the Ivy League. Scores ranged from 95-0 (1887) to 4-0 (1888) to 4g,6t-4s (1881).

In 1892, Penn came to Princeton and pulled out a 6-4 win, ending the 28-game
skid. From that point, going all the way through last year’s game — which
actually featured less scoring than the 1892 game — the overall series has
been 35-35-1.

Princeton and Penn also play field hockey today at 5 at Class of 1952 Stadium.
