As Edinboro’s unique history and tradition is celebrated this weekend during homecoming, two sports will draw even more attention to the university. On Saturday, Edinboro athletics will be broadcast by SPORTSfever and available on ESPN3.

While the Fighting Scots football team has been covered by SPORTSfever in various capacities for a decade, and they’ll be covered again in their home game against Gannon, women’s soccer will also be broadcast, a first both for the team as well as for SPORTSfever.

On games broadcast by SPORTSfever, Edinboro’s football team has a 15-11 record. They are 3-1 overall this season after losing their PSAC West opener on Saturday at California University of Pennsylvania. The game against Gannon kicks off at 2 p.m.

Before football kicks off, women’s soccer will host West Chester University of Pennsylvania at 9:30 a.m. at Sox Harrison Stadium. The Fighting Scots are 2-6 overall and 1-6 in PSAC play so far this season. They are 1-2 at home.

Head Soccer Coach Gary Kagiavas said he has not mentioned the extra coverage that will be present on Saturday to his team because he doesn’t want to put more pressure on his young squad.

“I’m not going to change anything — what we do or how,” Kagiavas said. “I’m just not going to tell them.”
