CFB Week 8 Lehigh Fan Viewing Guide

It's that time of the week where I share with you your weekly Lehigh fan viewing guide for Week 8 of the college football season.  Why go to website after website when all the information you need is right here?

If you are not able to attend the game this weekend at Murray Goodman Stadium you can follow the game from the following sources:

TV:  Service Electric 2 (Lehigh Valley)

Online Streaming: Patriot League Network (free)

Radio:   ESPN Radio 1230 and 1320

Internet:  Lehighsports.com/ESPNLV.com

After the game, there are a boatload of important games, most which are available via live streams!


Saturday, October 19th:

12:00 PM EST, Colgate at Holy Cross
TV: CBS Sports Network
LFN Watch Level: Deep Crimson (Must-DVR)
Live Stats

Two teams, two upcoming league opponents to scout, a huge game.  Games don't get much more important to stick on the DVR.  (Or VCR, for that matter.)

12:00 PM EST, Fordham At Yale
Video Streaming at: Ivy League Digital Network ($$$)

LFN Watch Level: Eli Blue (Elevated)
Live Stats

This game could very well be Fordham's possible stumble in a remaining schedule that all looks like wins to the naked eye.  Can the Eli be the team that knocks the Rams out of the ranks of the unbeatens?

12:00 PM EST, Villanova At New Hampshire
TV: The Comcast Network (Philly)
Video Streaming at: UNHWildcats.TV ($$$)
LFN Watch Level: Dark Blue (Elevated)
Live Stats

12:30 PM EST, William and Mary at Maine
TV: Fox College Sports Atlantic
Video Streaming at: Stretch Internet ($$$?)
LFN Watch Level: Black (Elevated)
Live Stats

How many big games can there be to follow at once?   Both are worth watching and cranking up the secondary and teritiary DVRs since they has big Eastern ramifications.  A win by New Hampshire will help Lehigh on a national level.  A win by them and William and Mary would put the entire CAA conference race in a giant mess, something Lehigh would love to see.

1:00 PM EST, Lafayette At Harvard
Video Streaming at: Ivy League Digital Network ($$$)
LFN Watch Level: Burnt Orange (Scouting Potential)
Live Stats

If Lafayette will turn things around in time for league play, this game would be a fantastic place to begin.

1:30 PM EST, Bucknell At Dartmouth
Video Streaming at: Ivy League Digital Network ($$$)
LFN Watch Level: Orange (Scouting Potential)
Live Stats

The last of the Patriot League/Ivy League challenge games, and your only refuge for Patriot League sports late in the day after the earlier games.

3:00 PM EST,  North Dakota State At Southern Illinois
Video Streaming: ESPN3 (free if your local cable provider provides it)
LFN Watch LevelRed (Important Game)

A huge game in the Missouri Valley conference race - and maybe, just maybe, the game that finally knocks the Bison from the ranks of the unbeatens.  Also, the fact it's available on demand is huge.

3:30 PM EST,  Coastal Carolina At Liberty
Video Streaming: ESPN3 (free if your local cable provider provides it)
LFN Watch Level: Red (Important Game)

As we get to some important national games on the schedule, this one sticks out as a critical, rivalry game in the Big South, available on ESPN3, that potentially has some ramifications in the Top 25 and maybe even the Big South conference title.  If nothing else this will be a fun backyard brawl against two programs that loathe each other, which will make this twice as fun.  And again, the fact it's available on demand is huge.

3:30 PM EST,  Cal Poly At Montana
Video Streaming: America One (free)
LFN Watch LevelRed (Important Game)

A decent rivalry that's been brewing with two Big Sky teams that couldn't be more different.  Additionally, it's probably a playoff game for the Mustangs, who desperately need this game to stay in the playoff picture.  Deseparation could make for great football.

7:00 PM EST,  Sam Houston State At McNeese State
Video Streaming: ESPN3 (free if your local cable provider provides it)
LFN Watch LevelRed (Important Game)

Critical game.  Huge Southland Conference game that could determine which team takes the title.  Last year's national runner-up, and the surprise team that destroyed USF the first week of the season.  Awesome sauce.
