Princeton has done everything necessary to keep itself in the driver's seat in the Ivy League race. But the Tigers have been able to do that work in the friendly confines of the Jadwin Squash Courts so far. This week, that will change.

The top-ranked Princeton Tigers (6-0, 3-0 Ivy League) will play three times this weekend, beginning Friday night at 7:30 in New Haven against the seventh-ranked Stanford Crimson. The match will be played at Yale, the site of Saturday's huge showdown between Princeton and the fifth-ranked Bulldogs.

Yale is ranked fifth, but it is undefeated in the league with road wins at Cornell and Columbia. The Bulldogs dropped to fifth in the rankings only after a 5-4 road loss at Trinity, in which four of the Yale losses were incredibly close. Top player and 2011 national champion Millie Tomlinson lost in five games, while three others players lost by two points in a tight fourth game.

Yale has won five straight matches in the series, including a pair of 7-2 decisions last season. Princeton's last victory over Yale came in 2010, a 5-4 thriller at Jadwin.

On Sunday, Princeton will head to Brown for a noon showdown with the ninth-ranked Bears.

Princeton will head into this weekend with as much momentum as it has had since its national championship seasons of 2007-09. The Tigers have back-to-back wins over top-three teams, including a 9-0 home win over third-ranked Penn Wednesday night.
