The Bulldogs will race Boston University and Dartmouth on Saturday on the Charles River in Boston. The first race kicks off at 7:24 a.m. The winner of the varsity eight will capture the Class of 1985 Cup.

Yale, which was ranked 10th in this week's US Rowing-CRCA national poll, won three of four races last week against Cornell and Syracuse. The Bulldogs have won the Class of 1985 Cup in each of the last 11 years. Last year on the Housatonic River, Yale won all five race, including a nearly four-second win in the varsity eight.

Boston University competed at the Dale England Cup in Indiana last weekend, while Dartmouth is racing for the first time this spring. The Big Green had been scheduled to race against Northeastern, Rhode Island and Boston College on the Charles River last weekend but the races were cancelled due to bad weather.
