Independent College Football Game Watching in NYC

An independent college football program is one that is not affiliated with a major conference. There are currently four Division I college football teams that are independent: Notre Dame, Brigham Young, U Mass and Army.  They have more flexibility to schedule games against various opponents.

Here is where independent college alumni clubs in NYC will be holding their game watches for the 2017 season:
