MEADVILLE, Pa. – Even if you are not traveling to Meadville to watch the Case Western Reserve University football team battle Allegheny College on Saturday, don't worry, there are plenty of ways to follow the action.

The game will air live on Fox College Sports Atlantic with John Sanders (play-by-play) and Ellis Cannon (color commentary) on the call.

Time Warner - Channel 319 (Sports Pass Package)
AT&T U-verse - Channel 647
DirecTV - Channel 617 or 623
Dish Network - Channel 425 or 428

Allegheny has also announced that ESPN3 has added the broadcast to its Saturday schedule. The game will share the time slot with just one other event across the country -- the University of Cincinnati vs. Miami University (Ohio) Division I football game. Case at Allegheny is the only Division III game that will air on the ESPN family of networks this week.

In addition, the Case Western Reserve broadcast team of Dave Wilson (play-by-play) and Ed Daugherty (color commentary) will provide live audio via

I think this exposure is a great thing for D3.  I am somewhat new to the D3 scene and so I'm wondering how often we have gotten any sort of attention from ESPN or similar in the past, and if this may be a sign of things to come.  My hope is that with all the drama over the summer of the NFL (and NBA) lockout more people will be interested in the collegiate atmosphere.

General football / Irene's Impact on Football

I'm curious to hear from the folks in New England and along the Mid-Atlantic seaboard how their programs were affected by Irene.

Here at CNU (Newport News, VA) our team lost about 4 days of practice due to evacuation, but the facilities are all in tact and ready to go for Saturday.  We actually installed new stadium lights on Thursday morning as the students were evacuating, and luckily they survived.
