The Ivy League champion Princeton football game will play six games on either national/regional television, including a pair of games on the NBC Sports Network during consecutive weeks this October. These games were announced when the Ivy League unveiled their 2017 season television package Monday.

Princeton will take on Harvard in a showdown of Ivy League champions from the last two seasons on Friday, Oct. 20, at 7:30 pm on the NBC Sports Network. Eight days later, Princeton will host Cornell at 7 pm on Powers Field in another game television on the NBC Sports Network.

The 2017 season marks the 10th-straight year of the partnership between the Ivy League and the NBC Sports Group. Over the nine previous seasons, the NBC family of networks have televised 47 Ivy football matchups, with 43 on NBCSN, featuring all eight schools.

Princeton will open its season Sept. 16 at 12 pm against the University of San Diego on Eleven Sports, and it will be streamed live on the Ivy League Network. This is the first year of the partnership between the Ivy League and Eleven Sports, which will also televise two other Tiger home games (Sept. 30, Columbia; Nov. 11, Yale).

The showdown between the 2016 Ivy League co-champions, Princeton and Penn, will be played on Franklin Field Nov. 4 at 1 pm, and it will be shown live on the regional Comcast Network, while also streamed live on the Ivy League Network. Last year, Princeton shut out Penn 28-0 on Powers Field in a critical late-season win that led the Tigers to their 11th Ivy League title.
