How To Catch Lehigh/Princeton If You’re Not Seeing the Pope
If you're not able to catch Lehigh/Princeton in person, whether due to the Pope being in town or just because you need to catch up on your wildflower collection, you can stream the game here from the Ivy League Digital Network. Unfortunately, it is not a free service, like that of the Patriot League and NEC, so if you wish to enjoy the game this way, it will cost you a few bucks.

If you're anything like me and are too cheap to spring for the $10 required, everyone's favorite radio call will be available here from Matt Kerr and Matt Markus will be reporting the pregame and sideline:
While waiting for Lehigh/Princeton to start, you can catch the first Patriot League conference game of the season, Colgate at Holy Cross:
It also may be on your local TV. Check your local listings. It doesn't appear to be on in the Lehigh Valley area, unfortunately.
A familiar foe for Lehigh fans, Monmouth, faces off against Fordham at 1PM:
Georgetown faces off against Columbia but it's behind the ILDN pay firewall:
Lafayette faces off against Wagner with a 6PM start, perhaps something to catch after Lehigh beats Princeton:
Other games that might be of interest to Lehigh fans that aren't happening simultaneously with Lehigh/Princeton:
Valparaiso, with former Lehigh offensive coordinator Dave Cecchini as lead guy, hosts Pioneer League heavyweight San Diego at 1:30 PM:
Notre Dame/UMass is on at 3:30 PM on NBC if you want to see what a true power FBS school can do to a school that should be competing in FCS. (Also if you want to see a little vengance for 1998.)
San Diego State takes on Penn State at 3:30 PM on the Big 10 Network in another game whose final outcome should be well determined before Lehigh/Princeton's 5:00 PM kickoff.
Lehigh's Week 2 opponent, James Madison, takes on SMU in a potential FCS vs. FBS upset. A win by the Dukes would certainly cement them nationally as a serious national championship contender. That game will be on ESPN3 at 7:00 PM.
Another interesting game could be nationally-ranked Liberty vs. Southern Illinois, with the Flames trying to avoid a letdown after their big win last week vs. Montana.
Something interesting to watch while having Texas A&M/Arkansas on ESPN in the background.
