Sept. 25, 2012
U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. -- The Air Force-Army hockey game on Saturday, Jan. 12 will be televised nationally on the CBS Sports Network, as announced today by Robert DeGregorio, Atlantic Hockey Commissioner. Faceoff for that game has been moved to 4:05 p.m. MT at the Air Force Academy's Cadet Ice Arena.
Air Force and Army are no stranger to the national scene as they have faced each other for the past six seasons on CBS Sports Network. The game will mark the 14th time in the last seven years that Air Force hockey has appeared on national television.
"Our players are thrilled about being able to play on national television," states Air Force head coach, Frank Serratore. "I am excited for the opportunity to showcase one of the greatest rivalries in college hockey, those fans who have never seen an Air Force-Army hockey game are in for a special treat"
"Once again we are looking forward to playing Air Force on national TV," states Army head coach Brian Riley. "It's a game that is played with a passion and intensity that is hard to match in college hockey. This rivalry is one of the best in all of college sports. I expect that it will be a great game not only for the people who will be in the stands to watch but it will also be great for people around the country to view on national TV."
The CBS Sports Network is televising two AHA games once again this season. The first will be on Friday, Jan. 4 at 7:30 pm ET as Robert Morris travels to West Point and takes on Army.
