Roundup: Hens slated for 3 TV games during 2016 football season

The Colonial Athletic Association announced its 2016 CAA Football television schedule on Wednesday and Delaware will be featured at least three times during the upcoming fall season.

Delaware’s three appearances are part of the CAA’s 30-game television package, which includes 18 conference matchups in conjunction with the league’s broadcast partners, NBC Sports Regional Networks and the American Sports Network.

The Blue Hens’ three appearances will include a Sept. 17 matchup at Atlantic Coast Conference foe Wake Forest on ESPN3 at 6:30 p.m.; a CAA home game vs. Towson on Oct. 29 at 3:30 p.m. on Comcast SportsNet; and a Nov. 12 league road game at Richmond at 3:30 p.m. on Comcast SportsNet.

Delaware could also appear a fourth time on Nov. 19 at home vs. Villanova — the 50th meeting all-time between the two rivals. The regular season concludes on Nov. 19 with CSN and ASN each picking a “wildcard game,” which will showcase the best matchups based on the conference standings.

The networks will choose the games no later than two weeks in advance.

CAA Football’s television lineup includes at least one conference game on every Saturday between Sept. 17 and Nov. 19.
