The Bears look to edge closer to tying the all-time series as it stands at 23-25-1 in Princeton's favor as Saturday's game marks the final regular season home game Brown's seven seniors (Kim Insalaco, Cassie Turner, Pam Dreyer, Courtney Johnson, Kate Kenny, Mandy McCurdy and Jenny Rice). All seven will be honored prior to the game . Brown has dominated the series since 1997, going 8-2. The Bears have out-scored the Tigers 30-17 in the last ten meetings, including four shutouts.
