The game is one of two AHA contests to be televised nationally by CBS Sports Network this season. The other game will feature RIT taking on Niagara, which is the defending Atlantic Hockey Regular Season Champion, on Friday, Jan. 24 at 7:00 pm ET.
Air Force and Army are no strangers to the national scene as they have faced each other for the past seven seasons on CBS Sports Network. The game will mark the 15th time in the last eight years that Air Force hockey has appeared on national television.
"Our players are thrilled about being able to play on national television," said Air Force head coach Frank Serratore. "Air Force versus Army is one of the greatest rivalries in college hockey and we excited to be able to showcase it to the nation. With many alums from both Army and Air Force serving our country all over the world, this is a tremendous opportunity for them to be able to watch a great college hockey game."
