NEWARK, Del.  --  University of Delaware Athletics has agreements with NBC Sports Philadelphia (formerly Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia), NBC Sports Washington (formerly Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic), SportsNet New York (SNY), and COZI TV, Delmarva's NBC affiliate in Rehoboth Beach, to broadcast Blue Hen football home games from Delaware Stadium during the upcoming 2017 season. 

Delaware will produce three games for live broadcast: Sept. 30 vs. James Madison, Oct. 14 vs. William & Mary, and Nov. 11 vs. Albany.

The William & Mary game will air live at 3:30 p.m. on NBC Sports Philadelphia+, COZI TV, and SNY and the Albany game will air live on NBC Sports Philadelphia, COZI TV, and SNY. The SNY broadcasts vs. William & Mary and Albany will both air on a one-hour tape delay beginning at 4:30 p.m.

Additionally, Delaware collaborated with James Madison University to produce the Sept. 30th match up. That game aired live on CSN Mid Atlantic via CSN+ serving 3.4 million homes throughout the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia as well as on CSN Philadelphia, SNY, and COZI TV, bringing the Blue Hens and Dukes to the homes of over 20 million fans.

The agreements will place the excitement of Delaware football into the homes of over six million viewers in the Philadelphia area, Southern New Jersey and Delaware via NBC Sports Philadelphia and NBC Sports Mid Atlantic. SNY reaches 12 million nationally and is available to viewers throughout New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, and northeastern Pennsylvania, and nationally on DIRECTV, Verizon FiOS, Comcast Cable, and AT&T U-Verse.

“This is a wonderful moment for the University of Delaware, Delaware Athletics and Delaware Football” said Director of Athletics and Recreation Services Chrissi Rawak. “We are excited for the opportunity to highlight the great things happening on our campus to over 20 million households.”

Jet Media will produce the televised games on behalf of Delaware. The University was represented by Collegiate Sports Management Group during the negotiation of these agreements.
