PHILADELPHIA - ESPN3 announced it will broadcast the 104th gridiron meeting between arch rivals Penn and Princeton worldwide. Kickoff from Princeton Stadium is set for 1 p.m. on Nov. 3.

Penn has won five straight over the Tigers and has not allowed more than 10 points in any of those games. For the first time in program history, the Quakers have defeated Princeton by four touchdowns or more in three consecutive seasons. Over the past three years, Penn has outscored Princeton 131-26 (65-0 in the second half), for an average margin of victory of 35.0 points. The Quakers have scored 18 touchdowns to the Tigers' two. Penn is 7-1 all-time at Princeton Stadium.

Each of Penn's first three games were televised, including the first of three national television appearances this season - a 28-21 win on NBCSN at Dartmouth (Sept. 29). The 15-time Ivy League champions will also appear on NBCSN at Yale on Oct. 20 and against Harvard at Franklin Field on Nov. 10. Both games kick off at noon.

Last year, the Quakers set a school record with four nationally televised games. Overall, this will mark the sixth straight year the Quakers have at least one national television game and the third time in the last five years they have been seen across the country on at least three occasions. Penn is now 5-2 all-time on VERSUS/NBCSN.
