From the Star Ledger:

Rutgers and Princeton played in all but seven seasons from 1933 through 1980, with the Tigers leading the all-time series 53-17-1. They haven't met on the football field since 1980, about the time when Rutgers entered what then university president Edward Bloustein called the "bigger time'' football era.

A 150th-anniversary meeting between Rutgers and Princeton won't happen after Rutgers scheduled Massachusetts as its 2019 season opener.

I hear Ash wanted no part of the Tigers.

Rutgers and Princeton talking about the 150th anniversary reminds me of the girlfriend I had when I changed jobs and moved several states away. She said, "I can't wait until we move. It's going to be so much fun." I had to start the awkward conversation that I planned to make the move alone. Nine months later, we were still dating long distance and I wanted her to join me but, by then, she had just gotten a nice promotion and she said no.

First, Rutgers wanted to play Princeton in the worst way when the previous regime was running things in New Brunswick, but Princeton demurred. Now Rutgers doesn't want to play, even if the new Princeton administration is more open minded. Too bad. It would have been great for the Ivy League.
