South Dakota-St. Cloud State Game To Be Webcast Saturday
As part of a package to bring live Division II football to the internet, the NCAA and CSTV will showcase four games on Saturday, Sept. 23, including the eighth-ranked South Dakota (3-0, 1-0 NCC) at St. Cloud State football game, which will begin at 6 p.m. The game will be available free of charge online via broadband video streaming.
In 2006, three North Central Conference football games will be
made available through video streaming. The other games include
North Dakota at Nebraska-Omaha on Saturday, October 14 and St.
Cloud State at Minnesota Duluth on Saturday, November 11. Fans can
view the games at www.NCAAsports.com/DII.
In addition to the live games, the NCAA web site will feature stories, scores, blogs, video and audio that is dedicated to Division II sports, making it both a destination site for the live games and a place to obtain information on Division II sports.
This partnership with CSTV is the first of its kind for Division II and provides an amplified platform to highlight the division's contests and student-athlete accomplishments, while promoting the intercollegiate athletics philosophy for Division II member institutions.
Saturday's game is one of four NCC games to be broadcast online
during the 2006 season. The other games are Oct. 14 North Dakota at
Nebraska-Omaha, Oct. 21 Central Washington vs. Western Washington
and Nov. 11 St. Cloud St. at Minnesota Duluth.
