Football Showdowns With Harvard, Dartmouth To Be Streamed Live On ESPN3
Last year, their respective endings included a triple-overtime, toes-just-inside-the-sideline, game-winning touchdown catch, as well as a swirling snowstorm and a 21-point rally that fell just short.
The teams involved combined to finish first, first and third in the Ivy League. Those same teams were projected to finish first, second and third in the 2014 Ivy League Preseason Poll.
And now the entire nation will be able to see those rematches.
ESPN3/WatchESPN will stream a pair of Princeton football games during the 2014 season, including the Oct. 25 showdown against Harvard, a 1 pm start on Powers Field. The second game will be the season finale, a Nov. 22 matchup with Dartmouth (1 pm).
Live streams of all the WatchESPN Networks are available at no additional cost to fans who receive ESPN as part of their TV subscription through participating TV providers. For more information about ESPN3/WatchESPN, please click here.
The games will not be available on the Ivy League Digital Network.
Princeton, the 2014 preseason Ivy favorite by a single point over Harvard, is coming off back-to-back thrilling victories over the Crimson. In 2012, Princeton scored 29 unanswered points in the final 12 minutes to rally for a stunning 39-34 victory over the Crimson. Last season, Princeton fought off a Harvard comeback, rallied from two deficits of its own in overtime, and topped Harvard 51-48 in triple overtime.
The Tigers won the Ivy League championship in 2013, but their lone loss came in another wild meeting with Dartmouth, which was picked third in this year's preseason poll. The Big Green led 21-0 before Princeton scored three straight touchdowns, but a touchdown run by Dalyn Williams provided the final margin in a 28-24 Dartmouth win.
