Providence, RI - Brown and Penn will battle at Franklin Field in an Ivy League gridiron match-up on Saturday, November 1, 2008 (12:00 noon) in a nationally televised game as part of the Ivy League Game of the Week package on VERSUS. VERSUS will televise five Ivy League football games under the title "The Ivy League Game of the Week, Presented by TIAA-CREF."
This agreement marks the first time since the early 1990s that Ivy League football games have been packaged together nationally. "The Ivy League Game of the Week, Presented by TIAA-CREF," will reach more homes than any other games in Ivy League football history, as VERSUS is currently in more than 73 million U.S. homes.
"The entire Ivy League community is thrilled to have the heart of our football season broadcast nationally this year by VERSUS, and we appreciate TIAA-CREF's strong support to make it possible. Our students and home communities, and our alumni around the country, as well as college football fans everywhere, will be able to watch top-notch football and celebrate great rivalries," said Jeff Orleans, Executive Director, Council of Ivy Group Presidents.
