College Hockey Super-Conference to Head For VERSUS?
July 11, 2011 7 Comments
From Brad Schlossman of The Grand Forks Herald:
There have already been discussions with members of the new league and television executives about getting games nationally televised on Versus, which is expected to soon be re-branded as the NBC Sports Network.
This would give UND a greater range of exposure than the current deal with Fox College Sports and DirecTV.
Versus recently agreed to a 10-year contract extension to continue televising NHL games in the United States. The station typically broadcasts NHL games early in the week, which could leave the weekend open for college hockey.
Colorado College currently is a television partner with CBS College Sports. Denver has games on FSN Rocky Mountain.
