TOP-15 TEAMS HIGHLIGHT COLLEGE HOCKEY ACTION ON CBS SPORTS NETWORK

No. 2 Boston College Hosts No. 13-ranked Boston University,

No. 8 Colorado College Takes On No. 10 Denver

 

CBS Sports Network broadcasts a college hockey doubleheader on Friday, Dec. 2 (7:30 PM, ET) beginning with *#13-ranked Boston University at #2-ranked Boston College. Eric Frede and Dave Starman handle the call, along with reporter Shireen Saski.

 

The Network also features *#10-ranked Denver at *#8-ranked Colorado College (10:00 PM, ET). Matt McConnell calls the action from the booth, while analyst Jim Paradise is stationed at ice level between the benches at World Arena in Colorado Springs, Colo.

 

The Network provides live pre-game coverage from Boston College’s Conte Forum to preview the night’s action and discuss college hockey news from around the country.

 

Throughout the season CBS Sports Network is airing a series examining the state of college hockey and the major issues facing the sport with influential college hockey figures including Boston University coach Jack Parker, Denver coach George Gwozdecky, former Notre Dame coach and Toronto Maple Leafs Vice President of Hockey Operations Dave Poulin and Minnesota Athletic Director Joel Maturi. During the BU-BC game, the panelists discuss the difference in playing rules in the NHL and NCAA. Discussion shifts to conference realignment during intermission of the Denver-Colorado College game.

 

During the games, fans can join the conversation on Twitter using the hash tag #CBSHockey. This week’s Twitter Question of the Week is: Is there a rule you don't like in college or one you'd like to see added?
