Harvard Football to Make Two Appearences on Versus

The final two games of Harvard's 2011 football season will be nationally televised on the Versus network, the Ivy League announced last week. A national audience will see the Crimson's November 12th matchup with the Penn Quakers as well as its traditional season-ending contest with the Yale Bulldogs on November 19th. Both games will kickoff at 12noon. Of course, all Harvard football games are broadcast on WHRB 95.3FM in the greater Boston area and around the world at

This will be the fourth year in a row that Ivy League football is shown on Versus, which is owned by NBC Universal and can be seen in over 75 million households, according to Business Insider. The complete schedule of Ivy football games on Versus is shown below:

September 24th: Cornell at Yale, 12noon

October 15th: Penn at Columbia, 3:30pm

October 22nd: Yale at Penn, 12noon

November 12th: Penn at Harvard, 12noon

November 19th: Harvard at Yale, 12noon

Will any more of Harvard's football games be televised? If any more are picked up, it will likely be the result of an arrangement involving the participating schools, as the Harvard-Dartmouth game was last year. The matchup between those two schools has been shown on NESN the last two years.
