The Ivy League has announced their 2019 ESPN football schedule, which includes seven games on the ESPN linear networks.

As part of the Ivy League’s agreement with ESPN, all remaining home football games will stream live on ESPN+.

“During this year of celebration of the rich history of college football, these national television appearances provide us with a unique opportunity to illustrate the Ivy League’s storied tradition and continued impact on the game,” said Ivy League Executive Director Robin Harris.
