They have a 22-5 overall record and a 9-2 record in the Patriot.
During the last four games, Bucknell looked solid with wins against Lehigh, Colgate, and Army but also stumbled with a bad loss to RPI #192 Lafayette.
Bucknell has a 3-2 record against the RPI Top 100 that includes a 1-1 record against the RPI Top 50 but no record against AP ranked teams. While the Bison have a single quality win against RPI #35 La Salle, they're also weighed down by three bad losses including RPI #192 Lafayette, RPI #145 Princeton, and RPI #199 Penn State.
