Yale-Harvard Football Game to Be Played Nov. 17 on NBC Sports

The NBC Sports Network will televise seven Ivy League football games this fall, including the Yale versus Harvard matchup on Nov. 17.

The CBS Sports Network will show one game Oct. 13 when Bucknell University, of the Patriot League, plays at Harvard, the Ivy League said in a statement.

The announcement comes a month after the NBC Sports Network and the Ivy League announced a two-year renewal of their national television rights agreement for football, men’s basketball and men’s lacrosse games.

The Ivy League is an association of eight Northeast U.S. schools that have high academic standards and don’t provide athletic scholarships.

They are Harvard in Cambridge, Massachusetts; Princeton in Princeton, New Jersey; Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island; Columbia University in New York City; Cornell University in Ithaca, New York; Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire; the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia; and Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut.

The schedule is as follows (all times Eastern):
