This week, Lehigh makes the short trip down to Franklin Field in Pennsylvania to take on the Quakers of Penn.
Kickoff time is at 3:00 PM and if you can’t make it to the game, the game is available though a pay service called ESPN+.
This isn’t the exact same thing as ESPN the station.
It works basically the way ESPN3 does, except that it requires a monthly subscription of $4.99 per month (though last I heard there was the availability of a free trial subscription available). ESPN+ also carries a lot of college football games during the course of the season (including all the Ivy League home games), so it might be worth your while. (Replays of the game I believe are available on ESPN3 for free later.)
With a subscription, if you have a Roku box in your home, you can stream ESPN+ directly to your TV from there. If you have the ESPN App on your phone and Chromecast, you can bring it up on your phone and push the “Cast” button to have it stream directly on your TV. Or you can navigate here on your desktop in a Chrome browser and use the “Cast” button from there.
Of course that solution works even better when you pair it with the local radio broadcast, either off your old-fashioned radio, streamed through TuneIn or just simply going to the LVFoxSports.com webpage and listening that way. Matt Kerr, Mike Yadush and Matt Markus are on the call this Saturday.
Like me, you probably heard that Hurricane Florence was barreling down on the North Carolina coastline, and earlier in the week it looked like a historic rain event could have possibly caused Lehigh’s first meeting against an FBS opponent in 15 years to be delayed, or even cancelled.
Meetings were had, and the situation monitored, but over the last 24 hours it looks like, at least for Annapolis and the Maryland area, it will be spared the worst of the storm.
According to the Capital-Gazette, “if the latest forecast holds Hurricane Florence won’t present any problems for Anne Arundel County, but officials warn residents should remain vigilant for any changes in the storm’s track.”
The shorter version, for Lehigh fans, anyway: Game. On.
