Key Games

2/9 @ Bryant

Bucknell will open up against Bryant for the second year in a row. The Bison haven’t lost to Bulldogs since 2014 and will be looking to keep that win streak going in 2020. Last season, this meeting was a low scoring affair as Bucknell won 9-6. 

3/7 @ Boston U. 

The Bison lost both of the meetings against the Terriers last season, including a season-ending loss in the Patriot League quarterfinals. However, Bucknell was able to keep it close for a time in both contest. With Boston U. losing two of their key contributors from last season this meeting certainly has the chance to swing in Bucknell’s favor. 

4/4 @ Lehigh

Bucknell upset Lehigh at home last season, scoring the final two goals to secure the 12-10 victory. Also, Bucknell hasn’t lost to Lehigh since 2017 and leads the all-time series 13-6. With Lehigh expected to be strong again in 2020, the Mountain Hawks could certainly be the Bison’s upset win in conference again this season.
