Two Colgate FB games on Stadium: Maine, Lehigh contests part of nine-game Patriot League package

Defending Patriot League Champion Colgate is set to be featured on Stadium twice during the 2019 season.

The Raiders host fellow FCS Playoff quarterfinalist Maine on Sept. 21 before welcoming Lehigh to Hamilton on Oct. 5. Both games are being televised nationally via Stadium’s over-the-air channels during the 2019 season.

Each of the games also will be distributed live on Stadium’s digital outlets including Roku, Pluto TV, Twitch.TV, Samsung TV Plus, and XUMO. The package includes a free live stream of each national game shown on and on the Patriot League Network (PLN).

Colgate’s two appearances are part of the nine-game Patriot League schedule on Stadium.

Veteran Patriot League and national television play-by-play announcer Matt Martucci and Dave Owens, who played collegiately at the U.S. Naval Academy, will be back on the call for the Patriot League’s football games on Stadium. They will work with Emmy-award winning producer Bob Lanning, who was instrumental in the launch of the Big Ten Network and received recognition for his work on Winter and Summer Olympic coverage for ABC Sports, in addition to directing inaugural HD broadcasts of the NFL, The Masters and the U.S. Open Tennis Championship for CBS Sports.
