HANOVER, N.H. — The Ivy League Office today announced an agreement with VERSUS, the fastest growing sports cable network in the country, to televise at least three football games for the 2010 and 2011 seasons. Among the three games announced for this upcoming fall season was Dartmouth’s final home game against Brown on Nov. 13. Game time has been set for noon.

The Big Green have a long history of playing football games broadcast on television, dating back to the 1953 season when Dartmouth played Holy Cross on NBC in the Manning Bowl in Lynn, Mass., in the first New England college game televised nationally. The game against Brown will be the 70th televised game for the Big Green, and they have appeared on TV at least once in each of the past 16 seasons.

Two of Dartmouth’s last three televised games have been aired by VERSUS — a 21-13 loss at Columbia on Oct. 25, 2008, and last year’s hard-fought 30-24 defeat against Penn at Memorial Field in Hanover on Oct. 3.

The Big Green have an all-time record of 24-44-1 when playing a televised game, including a 14-23 mark at Memorial Field.

The other two Ivy League games to be aired this fall are the Penn-Princeton game in New Jersey on Nov. 6 at 3 p.m., and the Yale-Harvard tilt in Cambridge, Mass., on Nov. 20 at noon. The three-game slate will mark the third consecutive year Ivy League football will air on VERSUS as the network has televised nine Ivy matchups over the last two seasons.
