NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Sunday's Yale-Creighton game will be televised nationally on tape delay by CSTV. The game, which is being shown live in Nebraska on NET and NET-HD, will air on CSTV on Tuesday, Sept. 19 at 10 p.m. (EST) and again on Wednesday, Sept. 20 at noon (EST). The contest is part of the Diadora Challenge. The Bulldogs play at Drake on Friday, while Creighton hosts Oregon State.
Fans around the world can also watch a free webcast of the NET broadcast of Sunday's game online live at www.netnebraska.org/television/. Larry Punteney (play-by-play) and former Bluejay Peter Henning (analyst) will provide the call.
The Bulldogs (2-2) are making their first trip to Omaha. Yale and Creighton have met once before, a 3-1 Bluejay win in the 2004 Yale Classic.
Creighton is currently on a four-match unbeaten streak, improving to 3-2-1 on the year after opening the season on the road against two top 15 foes. The Jays are 1-0-1 at home this season and have never lost a match in the nine-year history of the Diadora Challenge. Creighton advanced to the quarterfinals of the NCAA College Cup last year before falling to Clemson.
Sunday is the first of two Yale games scheduled to be televised this year. The Nov. 3 Brown game in Providence will be shown live on the Fox Soccer Channel at 8 p.m.
