Tiger fans at the 2017 Yale game
Beverly Schaefer

Since the end of World War II, Tiger fans have been able to rely on either the Harvard or Yale football game being played at Princeton. But changes to the Ivy League schedule flipped the location of the Harvard game this year, sending Princeton on the road against both rivals and leaving the University without its traditional homecoming weekend. 

Princeton will celebrate Homecoming Oct. 13, when the football team plays Brown at 1 p.m. and the Alumni Association hosts the annual Tiger Tailgate on Fine Plaza. In 2019, Homecoming will coincide with the Harvard game.

The Ivy League schedule was revised to feature regional rivalries on the final weekend of the season. Princeton’s home game against Penn was moved to Nov. 17, and its matchup with Dartmouth was switched to Nov. 3.
