Exciting news here at ABC-7. We'll have 3 Maine football games on our airwaves this upcoming season. Our schedule kicks off on October 17th, that's the Black Bears homecoming game against Yale, coverage starts at 3:30.
That's followed by another game the very next Saturday as Maine battles Stony Brook, kickoff there at 12:30. Our televised game schedule concludes with a home game against Elon on November 14th. Coach Jack Cosgrove says the statewide exposure for his program is invaluable.
"That's something that I think is incredibly important to us. We're still working real hard to get folks from Portland and the southern part of the state to come north and watch division 1 football here in Orono. I think it's a great brand of college football they get to see young men who potentially could be playing on Sundays somewhere down the road."
