Gorgeous Game Day In The Garden State

The forecast for kickoff here in New Jersey is 67 degrees and sunny with a gentle breeze. On Nov. 19, you can't ask for anything more.
The game will be televised on the ONE World Sports Network, which produced a capsule preview.

Fortunately, there's a "channel finder" that *may* help you discover if your system carries ONE World. Unfortunately not many do. To find out if yours does, CLICK HERE.

Not sure what to make of the following Tweet, which suggests you may be able to get the game online for free:

All very confusing.

If you have the Ivy League Digital Network you are in luck because the game will be carried there.
The Valley News preview begins with a look at former Dartmouth quarterback Dalyn Williams' involvement with the football program this fall . . . helping the Big Green trainers as a student assistant.

As he said in an earlier BGA Premium piece Williams isn't interested in giving pro football another shot after being released before the start of camp by the Chicago Bears. This time, however, if he didn't leave the door open to the possibility of a return a little light might have slid underneath it. He told the paper of the chances:
“There’s a fair probability I would get hurt emotionally again, and I don’t think it’s worth it. Maybe I’ll change my mind, but I don’t anticipate that.”
He also told the paper:
“The reason I’m not playing football is because of social constructs that I can’t control.”
Searching the Harvard and Yale websites I haven't been able to confirm this but the unofficial Ivy League message board is reporting the Harvard junior varsity defeated the Yale junior varsity yesterday by . . . wait for it . . . a 68-0 score. If that's true it won't sit well with Yale alums waiting for their first win over Harvard on the varsity level since 2006, and just their second since 2000.
