At least 10 NCHC games to air on FOX Sports North; at least 18 games to be shown on FOX College Sports

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Adding to its already announced television schedule, the National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC) revealed the NCHC games that will be broadcast on the FOX Sports family of networks in 2017-18, in conjunction with FOX Sports North. At least 18 NCHC games will be shown nationally on FOX College Sports, including a minimum of 10 games that will originate from and air on FOX Sports North.

For the fourth straight season, FOX Sports North will televise select home contests from St. Cloud State across its five-state viewing region during the season. FOX Sports North (and FOX Sports North PLUS) is slated to showcase 10 games from the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center in St. Cloud with eight of the games on FOX Sports North Plus and two on FOX Sports North itself. SCSU will also be featured in one road non-conference contest on FOX Sports North. In addition to the St. Cloud State games, a handful of games originating from Minnesota Duluth may be added to the FOX Sports North television schedule at a later date.

Along with the FOX Sports North broadcasts, at least 16 NCHC games will be distributed nationally live on FOX College Sports. Two will also be shown on tape delay. At least eight of the FOX Sports North broadcasts originating from St. Cloud State will be elevated up to air live on FOX College Sports, while five games from North Dakota’s Ralph Engelstad Arena and two from Omaha’s Baxter Arena are also slated to be shown live on FOX College Sports. More games are likely to be added to the FOX College Sports schedule, as well.

The first NCHC games to air on FOX Sports North this season take place Oct. 13-14 when the Huskies host the Alaska Nanooks, with both games on FOX Sports North PLUS and FOX College Sports. The first conference match-ups to be spotlighted on FOX Sports North are Nov. 3-4 when Minnesota Duluth makes the short trek to St. Cloud State. The start time for the Saturday, Nov. 4 game between UMD and SCSU has been changed to 4 p.m. CT for television, from its originally scheduled 7:07 p.m. CT start time.

Both games of SCSU’s series with North Dakota Dec. 8-9 will also be shown on FOX Sports North and FOX College Sports. The Huskies will then get to take part in the 12th Annual Hockey Day Minnesota, which is hosted by the city of St. Cloud in 2018, on FOX Sports North PLUS, when they host in-state rival Minnesota State at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 20. SCSU home games with Omaha Feb. 2 and Denver Feb. 24 wrap up the NCHC on FOX Sports North schedule.

FOX Sports North reaches more than 2 million homes throughout Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and North and South Dakota and telecasts nearly 2,600 hours of locally produced programming per year. For more information about the Emmy Award-winning regional sports network, visit www.foxsportsnorth.com.

The SCSU home games on FOX Sports North will be produced by the student crew of Husky Productions, which is celebrating their 25th year of televising St. Cloud State men’s home hockey games.  

The first five NCHC games on FOX College Sports are simulcasts from FOX Sports North, while the first North Dakota home game to air is Saturday, Nov. 11 against Miami. Omaha makes its debut on FOX College Sports on Friday, Dec. 8 against Minnesota Duluth and will be shown again when they host Miami on Friday, Jan. 12. The final NCHC game on FOX College Sports for 2017-18 is St. Cloud State at North Dakota on Saturday, March 3, which is the final night of the regular season.

FOX College Sports televises more than 1,000 NCAA and high school events annually and features three nationally distributed channels - FCS Pacific, FCS Central and FCS Atlantic.
