UND Hockey: Both games of the UND vs. DU Hockey Series will be on DirecTV

There is some very good news for UND hockey fans. Today, while I was reading the Let’s Go DU fan blog, I came to the revelation that both hockey games will be on DirecTV when UND travels to DU on January 24 and 25, 2014. The same thing happened last season when the two teams played in Denver last February.

Game one of the two game series, between UND and DU will be on CBS Sports Network. Game two of the series, will be on ROOT Sports, Rocky Mountain.

So, if you get DirecTV and the sports pack, you will be able to watch both games. ROOT Sports Rocky Mountain HD is on DirecTV 683. Also, CBSSN is on DirecTV 221. You don’t need the sports pack to get CBSSN.
DENVER – The University of Denver Division of Athletics and Recreation and ROOT SPORTSTM announced today that the network will broadcast six regular season Denver hockey games, six men's basketball games and one women's basketball game this season. This marks the 13th consecutive year, and 20th season overall, that the network has been the official television partner of the Pioneers.

Pioneer hockey coverage begins Friday, Nov. 15 at 7:30 p.m. MT, when DU hosts Western Michigan. The Pioneers' television schedule also includes matchups against Air Force (Nov. 23), Brown (Jan. 3), St. Cloud State (Jan. 10), North Dakota (Jan. 25) and Miami (March 7).
This is good for UND hockey fans that aren’t able to travel to the games.
