Tribe on Versus
The Tribe saw their season-opener broadcast nationally on online network ESPN 360 and will now appear on an even larger platform. The CAA and Versus announced today that the network will broadcast the no. 5 College’s Oct. 3 matchup against no. 2 Villanova, the first nationally televised regular-season CAA game in history. Gametime will be moved up to 3:30 p.m. to accomodate the television coverage.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to have two of the Top-5 teams in the country and our conference showcase CAA Football to a national audience,” CAA football commissioner Tom Yeager said.
Delaware a sellout
The College’s CAA opener against Delaware is now officially sold out and the athletic department is urging students to show up early to ensure seating. Approximately 9,000 tickets have been sold for Saturday’s game, with 3,000 seats left available to students.
Last season, the Tribe routed the Blue Hens on the road 27-3 for the College’s first win in Newark since 2001.
