PITTSBURGH (AP) - Quinnipiac and Yale are located 10 miles apart, connected by a stretch of Connecticut highway but not much else.
When the two schools meet for the NCAA hockey title on Saturday night, it will be a clash of styles and history.
The Bulldogs have the oldest college hockey program in the country and their school is part of Ivy League royalty. The top-seeded Bobcats didn't join Division I until 1998 and serve as the benchmark for a rapidly growing university.
Quinnipiac has won all three meetings between the schools this year, outscoring Yale by a total of 13-3. The Bobcats say they're treating this like just another game, and coach Rand Pecknold insists Yale is much improved from the team that lost 3-0 to Quinnipiac three weeks ago.
