Football Schedule Confirmed

2015 Is Unusual For Yale

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The 2015 Yale Football Schedule was made public months ago, but today the dates and times were confirmed. The last bit of schedule detail adds intrigue to an already unusual slate that includes a Friday night game, lights at Yale Bowl, three different home kickoff times and Yale's Northern most trip.

When you are the schedule maker and have to deal with a pre-determined league schedule that fits around three non-Ivy contests with some moving parts, equity is never guaranteed. Everyone would like five home games and five road ones. Last fall's slate had the Bulldogs with six home dates for the 100th anniversary of the Bowl. That was unusual for Yale Football over the last 45 years.

For the second time in three seasons the Elis open at Colgate on Sept. 19. It's the first of a modern school-record six road games during the first Yale fall without a non-league game at the Bowl.

Three (Colgate, Lehigh, Dartmouth) have listed Yale as its "homecoming game, " while Princeton hosts the Blue in its last home contest and Penn has "parents weekend" when the Elis come to town. The last time the Blue played as many games on the road was a 16-game campaign in the late 19th century.

The 101st season at Yale Bowl kicks off with Cornell on Sept. 26, the first of four home dates that conclude with the 132nd edition of The Game. Harvard and Yale kick off at 2:30 p.m. in standard time.

2015 is the first time the Elis have multiple scheduled times requiring lights. The third-ever Yale Friday game is at Penn on Oct. 23 at 7 p.m., so the lights will be on for kickoff at Franklin Field. The Blue played Friday games against Virginia Tech (1916, New Haven) and Valparaiso (1997 at Chicago).

Lights are also needed for at least the second half of Harvard, making it the first game under lights in the Bowl. The famous venue has not been lit for a public event since Yale's tercentennial celebration in 2001. The Elis' last "night" contest was in 1999 at the University of San Diego.

The Bulldogs have played four night games. The first was a 1980 contest at Boston College followed by a 1987 trip to the University of Hawaii. More recently, the Blue took on Valparaiso in 1997 at Soldier Field in Chicago before traveling to Torero Stadium two years later.

Yale's first-ever trip to Orono and the University of Maine marks the furthest North the Elis have ever played. It's also the first meeting of the Bulldogs and Black Bears since 1937.

All 10 games can be heard on the Yale Football Radio Network and can be seen online or on TV. Currently, two road games (Colgate, Maine) are confirmed for TV. Don't be surprised if a handful more for the tube are finalized over the next few weeks.
