BALTIMORE, Md. (July 28, 2010) -- CAA Football, which is the home of the last two NCAA Division I National Champions, will once again feature the nation’s largest Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) television package in the upcoming 2010 season.

CAA Football Commissioner Tom Yeager announced a 29-game television schedule as part of the league’s Media Day Celebration, Wednesday at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Md.  The schedule is highlighted by a conference package of 19 games airing on Comcast Sports Group regional networks.

“We are thrilled to have the largest FCS television package in the country for the fourth-straight year,” Yeager said.  “Thanks to our partnerships with Comcast Sports Group, ESPN and a number of other carriers we are able to create a television package which showcases the best FCS conference in the country.”

The 19-game conference-only package covered by Comcast Sports Group features the most competitive games airing on regional networks spanning the East Coast.  Comcast Sports Group networks, including Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic and Comcast SportsNet New England, will cover eight games throughout the 12-week season, with additional distribution on Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia and CSS, schedule permitting. The Comcast Network will air the remaining 11 conference games as well as Villanova’s contest with Penn throughout its footprint.

“Our long-standing media partnership with Comcast Sports Group has afforded us great exposure over our first three seasons of football,” Yeager said.  “Comcast Sports Group networks reach more than 17 million homes in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions, which means our league’s most passionate fans can count on watching CAA Football broadcasts every Saturday throughout the season.”

“CAA Football institutions have passionate fan bases in the markets we serve,” Mike Sheehey, Comcast Sports Group senior vice president of sports content said.  “By partnering with CAA Football for another season, we’re able to deliver exciting content our viewers want and to help the conference continue to grow through the exposure we’re able to provide.”

The remaining nine games on the 2010 CAA Football Television package will feature six combined non-conference broadcasts on ESPN3.com and the Big Ten Network.  Two of Maine’s home conference games will be televised on Maine’s institutional television package on WABI-TV in the Orono, Maine area, while Rhode Island’s season-opening game at Buffalo will air live on Time Warner Cable SportsNet in New York.
