Q.U. & Truman State Football Game to be on TV Saturday
The Great Lakes Valley Conference (GLVC) will once again garner national acclaim as the Truman State University at Quincy University (Q.U.) contest is set to air live on American Sports Network (ASN) at 11 a.m. CT this Saturday, Oct. 31, 2015.
The Conference contest, originally scheduled for 1 p.m. CT, was moved to 11 a.m. to accommodate a national viewing audience as part of the NCAA Division II Football National Television Package. ASN has reached agreements to distribute its broadcasts to regional cable networks and through its parent company, Sinclair Networks Group, syndicates that will potentially make the game available in 94 million of the nation’s 113 million TV homes.
The network has aired one NCAA Division II game each week during the season, and this GLVC contest will air live on the Sinclair affiliates, KHQA-TV in Quincy and KTVO-TV in Kirksville. In addition to ASN, the game will be offered to regional carriers and streamed live and free on NCAA.com and the NCAA Sports mobile app.
No one could be happier about this news than Quincy University Athletic Director Marty Bell who said “We are thrilled with the opportunity to showcase Quincy University and our football program in a national spotlight. I want to thank the NCAA, the GLVC and American Sports Network for granting us this opportunity. To feature the new Q.U. Stadium on a national broadcast is a tremendous reward for our football program, our athletic department, the University and the Quincy community. This will also allow prospective students and alumni who can’t make it to a game this fall to see the commitment the university has to its students and student-athletes alike.
Meanwhile, Q.U. Coach Tom Pajic said “This is a great opportunity for our football team to play in front of a national audience. The timing of this game couldn’t be better as we now have the ability to showcase our new $4 million football complex. Add that we have a formidable foe in Truman State coming to town, this has all the makings of a great Division II football game from the GLVC.”
