This will be the 75th appearance on television for the Big Green football team, and the fifth straight year that its showdown with Penn will be aired live on TV. Last year the Quakers nipped Dartmouth in the final seconds of the first-ever night game at Memorial Field, 22-20. The Big Green went on to finish in a tie for second place with a 4-3 record in the Ivy League while posting a 5-5 mark overall.
The NBC Sports Network will carry a total of seven games, with an eighth game broadcast by CBS Sports Network, as part of the Ivy League package that was announced last month. NBC Sports' college football studio team of Liam McHugh, Doug Flutie and Hines Ward will provide pre- and post-game coverage on NBC and/or NBC Sports Network every Saturday of the college football season. Game commentators will be announced closer to the start of the season.
The NBC Sports Network, previously branded as VERSUS, has televised 17 Ivy League football matchups featuring all eight schools in the conference over the past four seasons.
