Patrick Witt's scheduling dilemma to be featured on tonight's NBC Nightly News

NBC Nightly News will air a piece tonight on the scheduling conflict Yale senior quarterback Patrick Witt could be faced with on Nov. 19.

A crew was on campus on Friday and at Yale's game with Brown on Saturday getting interviews and footage for the story and here is a link to a portion of the interview

For those who haven't been following the story, Witt is a Rhodes Scholarship finalist and his final interview is scheduled for Nov. 19 in Atlanta. That is the same day that Yale hosts Harvard in the regular-season finale. Three years ago, the Dallas regional committee allowed Yale cornerback Casey Gerald to do his final interview on Friday night. He was able to fly out first thing Saturday morning and get to Harvard Stadium in time for the game. Yale officials, who played a key role in getting Gerald's interview moved, are attempting to do the same for Witt.

When I spoke to him for a story I wrote on the subject last week, Witt said his inclination is to honor his commitment to his team. He is scheduled to be in attendance at tomorrow's gathering at Mory's with media members so look for an update on the subject at some point tomorrow.

NBC Nightly News is slated to start at 6:30 p.m.
