Center Valley, Pa. - CBS College Sports Network will televise one of the annual gridiron rivalries between the Patriot and Ivy League when Bucknell hosts Cornell on Oct. 2 at 3:30 p.m. at Christy Mathewson-Memorial Stadium in Lewisburg.
Coming off a 4-7 season where they finished 2-4 in the Patriot League, the contest will be the Bison's second home game under new head coach Joe Susan. Bucknell returns 13 of its 22 starters for 2010. Cornell finished 2-8 last season, and will also be under the direction of a first-year head coach in Kent Austin.
The Big Red knocked off Bucknell, 33-9, on Sept. 19 a year ago.
The kickoff was moved up by a half-hour to fit the television time slot.
