Derick Raabe and the TIgers will play Cornell at MetLife Stadium in the Konica Minolta Big City Classic.

The winner of the Princeton-Cornell men's lacrosse game has, way more often than not, won the Ivy League championship.

This coming season will be the fourth straight where the teams have met on the final day of the regular season, something that has only heightened the intensity of the rivalry. Oh, and that game has also included the opportunity to host the Ivy League tournament, which only Princeton and Cornell have done in the event's three-year history.

The 2012 matchup between the schools included both prizes, the league title and the hosting role for the league tournament, and both went to Princeton.

Should the 2013 matchup be the same, then the winner will be celebrating on a different field than usual.

The 2013 Princeton-Cornell game will be played at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford as part of the Konica Minolta Big City Classic. The event, to be held April 27, will begin at 4 with the Tigers and Big Red and conclude with a game between Syracuse and Notre Dame.

Moving this game to MetLife stadium ensures that Princeton will be playing at least one game in an NFL stadium for the seventh consecutive year.

Princeton and Cornell have both won 26 Ivy League championships, which happens to be 19 more than the next highest total, the seven won by Brown.

Princeton (six) and Cornell (three) are the only Ivy League schools ever to win NCAA championships.
