Not only are the crowds smaller, but the TV cameras always are on the Home side facing the visiting sideline, and to the emptier seats. The optics make this look terrible on TV, as many HS games have more in the seats than the Ivy. Get the home teams to switch sides, and at least have the TV audience see the better attended side. Not that it would matter at Harvard or Yale, but at a place like Dartmouth, their home side is always crowded.

I feel having the Ivy League Football games on national TV is very important for the league as it helps with recruiting. Players want their fiends and family to be able to watch them play on TV.

I think the decision to move next year's Yale-Harvard game to Fenway was ratings driven. I wouldn't be suprised to hear that NBC was the driving force pushing it. That game should see its ratings triple as a result.

Yale sponsor Under Amour wants to see Yale play on TV too to get a return on their $16mm investment in Yale athletics. I would guess that they also were pushing for the game at Fenway.
