PRINCETON, N.J. --  Ivy League football experiences a unique doubleheader this Saturday with two games featured on two different national networks. Princeton plays host to Brown in a Noon start on the NBC Sports Network, followed by Harvard hosting Bucknell in a non-conference matchup slated to kick off at 3:30 p.m. on the CBS Sports Network.

The Bears go into Powers Field at Princeton Stadium looking for its first Ivy League win of the season and to extend its winning streak to six over the Tigers. Princeton is poised to make it two-straight wins after a 35-14 win at Lafayette last week. Randy Moss will handle the play-by-play with analyst Ross Tucker. Carolyn Manno will report from the sideline at Powers Field at Princeton Stadium in Princeton, N.J.

Harvard has a FCS-leading, 13-game winning streak on the line against Bucknell. The Crimson handed the Bison a 42-3 defeat in their meeting last season. Dave Ryan (play-by-play) and Todd Christensen (analyst) will call all the action from Harvard Stadium with Evan Washburn reporting from the sidelines.

The Brown-Princeton game is smack dab in the middle of more than 18 hours of live-event college football and college hockey coverage this weekend on NBC and NBC Sports Network. Highlighting NBC Sports' programming for the weekend is No. 7 Notre Dame hosting No. 17 Stanford on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. on NBC. For the first time, NBC Sports' college football studio show featuring Liam McHugh, Doug Flutie and Hines Ward will go on the road and broadcast on-site from Notre Dame Stadium. In addition to the live-event and studio programming, a special NFL Films-produced behind-the-scenes look at Notre Dame Football, Onward Notre Dame: South Bend to Soldier Field, will air prior to Notre Dame-Stanford at 2:30 p.m. on NBC.

The weekend includes two additional college football games as well as the season debut of NBC Sports Network's college hockey coverage. Veteran NHL commentators Dave Strader and Pierre McGuire will be on-site Friday and Saturday in Kansas City, Mo., to call the Ice Breaker Tournament. On Friday, Notre Dame takes on Maine 7 p.m., followed by Army vs. Nebraska-Omaha at 10 p.m. The winners meet in the tournament final on Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

Other Ivy League football games on tap for Saturday include Yale at Lafayette at Noon, Monmouth at Cornell at 12:30 p.m., Columbia at Penn at 1 p.m. and Sacred Heart at Dartmouth at 1:30 p.m. The Yale-Lafayette game can be seen on ESPN3 and the Lafayette Sports Network.
