UND vs. UMD TV programming note

GRAND FORKS, N.D. – With the National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC) race going down to the wire, fans can see both games of North Dakota’s critical Feb. 21-22 series at Minnesota Duluth on live television.

Friday’s game will be broadcast live nationally on FOX Sports North Plus, which is also available on DirecTV channels 652-1 (HD) and 652 (SD) and DISH Network channels 9515 (HD) and 445 (SD).

Saturday’s game can be seen live regionally on Midco Sports Network channel 622 (HD) and 26 (SD).

Coverage from UMD’s AMSOIL Arena begins both nights at 7 p.m. Central. Tom Hansen will handle the play-by-play duties alongside former Minnesota Duluth player Judd Medak.

North Dakota will enter the series tied for second place, three points ahead of third place  Nebraska-Omaha, just three points behind league-leading St. Cloud State and five points ahead of Minnesota Duluth, which is tied for fifth place.

Note: It was originally announced earlier this month that Midco Sports Network would televise both games of the series. With FOX Sports North Plus now carrying Friday’s game, Midco Sports Network will pick up Saturday’s game only.
