Butler Homecoming To Be Carried On MyINDY-TV

Central Indiana fans of Butler’s record-setting football team will have a chance to see the Bulldogs’ Homecoming game on television this fall.  MyINDY-TV, channel 23, will bring Butler Football to television viewers with a live broadcast of the Bulldogs’ game against Morehead State on October 23 at 1:00 p.m.

“We take great pride that Butler University is in our community,” said Jeff White, MyINDY-TV/WISH-TV, President and General Manager.  “We’re proud to be the home of Butler basketball and now look forward to bringing fans LIVE coverage of this year’s Homecoming football game.”

Under the direction of head coach Jeff Voris, the Bulldogs finished their 2009 season as the Pioneer Football League (PFL) co-champions and the Gridiron Classic champions.  The Bulldogs finished the 2009 campaign with a school-record 11-1 final ledger.  

“Homecoming at Butler is always one of the special Saturdays on our schedule and with MyINDY-TV on campus it will be even bigger,” Voris said. “Our program has made steady progress over the last four seasons and has had many big wins.  MyINDY-TV televising our homecoming game is yet another indication that our program is headed in the right direction.”

Voris, who begins his fifth season as Butler’s head coach, led the Bulldogs to unprecedented success last year.  The victory over Central Connecticut State in the Gridiron Classic was Butler’s first postseason football win, and it completed the school’s first 11-win season.  The Bulldogs set a school record for home victories (7) and tied the school record for consecutive wins with a 9-0 start to the season.  Butler also tied PFL records for wins (11) and league wins (7).

MyINDY-TV is also home of Butler Basketball.   After a season that took them to the 2010 NCAA National Championship Game, the Bulldogs return to MyINDY-TV, channel 23 for the third season in a row.  

MyINDY-TV, a My Network affiliate, is a sister station to WISH-TV.   MyINDY-TV broadcasts over-the-air on channel 23 and on channel 10 on most cable systems.  A complete cable listing can be found at www.INDYTV.com.
