Game vs. Princeton Selected for TV

 

PRINCETON, N.J. -- As part of the Ivy League's comprehensive partnership with ESPN set to launch next week, ESPN has added three League events across three sports to its ESPNU telecast schedule this fall, including the Oct. 26 Yale vs. Princeton volleyball match.

Princeton and Yale, which have combined to win the Ivy League title in 10 of the past 11 seasons, shared the League championship in 2017.


The three-game ESPNU set will begin with Princeton at Columbia women's soccer on Sunday, Oct. 14, followed by Dartmouth at Columbia men's soccer on Friday, Oct. 19 and the Tigers and Bulldogs a week later at 6 p.m.
 
"One of the many benefits to our relationship with ESPN is the enhanced exposure it will provide all 33 Ivy League sports," Ivy League Executive Director Robin Harris said. "Each of the matchups features the top two teams in the Ivy League standings from last season and highlights programs that have demonstrated the ongoing national success of the League. We are excited to showcase these games and accomplished student-athletes on the national stage."
 
In total, at least 20 Ivy events will be broadcast annually on ESPN linear networks while over 1,100 events will annually appear across ESPN platforms
