DURHAM, N.H. – After having their six-game winning streak snapped against Boston College on Wednesday, the Yale Bulldogs look to rebound against the New Hampshire Wildcats. A win over New Hampshire would be Yale's fifth straight on the road, which would be the team's longest road winning streak since 2012-13. New Hampshire enters this contest 3-0 at home and with five straight wins overall, so at least one streak will be broken on Sunday.

 

Yale's Recent Run

Although Yale lost its most recent game at home, the team is still on a four-game road winning streak and is looking for its first five-game road winning streak since 2012-13.
