The Lafayette at Bucknell football game, which will open the Leopards' 2012 Patriot League campaign on Sept. 22, will be televised nationally on CBS Sports Network.
The noon kick-off in Lewisburg, Pa. will see the Leopards looking to re-establish the dominance the program has held over the Bison in recent seasons. Bucknell's 39-13 aberrational win over Lafayette on a snow-covered Fisher Field snapped Lafayette's nine-game winning streak in the series. Lafayette finished the season 4-7 while the Bison enjoyed a five-game turnaround and finished 6-5.
