Duquesne at Sacred Heart Highlights 2013 NEC Television Schedule
Aug 16, 2013
PITTSBURGH - Duquesne's trip to Fairfield, Conn. to face Sacred Heart on Nov. 9 highlights the five-game Northeast Conference television package released today.
Through a recently-completed agreement, all five games will air nationally via ESPN3.
Defending conference champion Wagner hosts Bryant in the first game of the package on September 28. A complete schedule of televised NEC games - which includes at least one appearance by all seven league members - is listed below.
The 2013 package will welcome former NFL punter Jeff Feagles into the NEC's broadcast booth. The two-time Pro Bowler, who enjoyed a 22-year professional playing career, will provide color commentary on the coverage. Paul Dottino, a New York Giants beat reporter and NFL Network contributor, will return for what will be his 11th season handling play-by-play duties. For the fourth year in a row, John Schmeelk will serve as the sideline reporter for NEC football.
Duquesne, which is beginning its sixth season as an associate member of the NEC, was picked to finish second in a preseason poll of league coaches released this week.
The Dukes, who are in their ninth season under head coach Jerry Schmitt, open at home against Albany on Aug. 31.
