The game, which kicks off at 1:06 p.m. at Cameron Stadium in Washington, Pa., will be televised by local and regional television outlets across Ohio and Pennsylvania, as well as nationally on the ESPN3 platform.
The historical excellence of both programs, combined with the high expectations they share for the 2019 campaign, make this a highly anticipated season opener. The Presidents, ranked 21st in the d3football.com poll, enter the season with the third-highest all-time win total amongst NCAA Division III programs, 29 wins behind Wittenberg. Both teams are coming off league championship performances a year ago.
