Posted September 26, 2002; 01:09 p.m.
The Princeton Tigers will play their home opener against the Lafayette Leopards 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28 at Princeton Stadium. For those who can't attend each one of this season's Tiger football games, the events will be presented on radio, cable television and the Web.
All of the games will be broadcast live on WBUD AM 1260, which reaches the Central New Jersey/Bucks County listening area. Also, each of the six home games will be televised by RCN, a local cable affiliate.
The WBUD and RCN broadcasts will be streamed live on the Princeton Athletics Web site. These Webcasts can be accessed by subscribing to the new Tigers Pass. On game days, the Athletics home page will feature a link to both the audio and video broadcasts.
Four home games will be televised on the CN8 network, which is based out of Philadelphia. These games will be against Lafayette (Sept. 28), Brown (Oct. 19), Harvard (Oct. 26) and Penn (Nov. 9).
The Ivy League recently announced that the YES Network will produce and broadcast four Ivy League football games live. Each of the eight Ivy League teams will be shown once during the 2002 season. Princeton fans will get to watch the season finale against Dartmouth (Nov. 23) on the YES Network, which is available on DirecTV.
Information about satellite broadcasts (including the Sept. 28 game) and details on obtaining a Tigers Pass are available on the Athletics Web site.
