For the third time in four years, the University of Indianapolis Greyhound football team will play on a nationally-respected media outlet, as its 2017 home opener against Grand Valley State will be carried on ESPN3 and the WatchESPN app. Kickoff against the No.2-ranked Lakers is set for 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 31.

“The chance to be featured on such a wide-reaching ESPN affiliate is not only great for the university, but it’s a great privilege for our student-athletes and coaches,” said Sue Willey, vice president for Intercollegiate Athletics at UIndy.
The Greyhounds have won each of their last two contests in front of a national audience. Last season, UIndy won a convincing 34-12 versus William Jewell, a game streamed on ESPN3 as part of the NCAA Division II Football Showcase. Prior to that, the Greyhounds delivered a thrilling 36-33 quadruple-overtime win against Saint Joseph’s College in 2014, produced and aired by CBS Sports Network and billed as the NCAA DII Football Game of the Week.
