Tune In

A Dartmouth graphic detailing this fall's television schedule:

The Ivy League Digital Network will be available this year on Apple TV and Roku as well as via stream on your computer, table or phone/iPod. From the Ivy release:
“We are excited to expand our partnership with the Ivy League by offering fans the ability to watch great live and on-demand video content on Roku and Apple TV devices.” said Tim Vargas, Senior Vice President of NeuLion. “Fans’ natural tendencies are to watch video, especially live video, on the largest device available. By providing over-the-top apps, Ivy League fans will now be able to enjoy a big screen television experience.”

Dartmouth has had five practices and will hold its (non-tackling) Green-White fall scrimmage Saturday. The Big Green's three nonconference opponents, meanwhile, will each kick off the season Saturday with two of them collecting checks for playing at FBS opponents.

New Hampshire, which will be in Hanover for the Big Green opener on Sept. 17, plays at San Diego State Saturday night. The Wildcats will have seven new starters on offense (including a new quarterback) and seven new starters on defense as they try to extend the nation's longest streak of FCS playoff appearances.

Towson, which will make its first trip to Memorial Field on Oct. 15, is opening Saturday night at South Florida.

And Holy Cross, which will entertain Dartmouth Sept. 24 in the Big Green's first road contest, travels to Morgan State Saturday afternoon.

The BGA Premium previews of Ivy League opponents wrapped up last night with a look at Yale. A lot of time went into researching and writing the overviews of each team, so take a look. You might just be surprised at which teams are projected to battle it out for the Ivy League title this fall.

The BGA nonconference previews will run on the coming Wednesday, Friday and Sunday nights.
After five consecutive practices Dartmouth football will have a little R&R today. Check BGA tonight for a look at how the Big Green players spent their afternoon off ;-)
