It's official: FSN will air Beavers-Michigan game Saturday
The Bemidji State men's hockey team's game against Michigan Saturday in the NCAA Midwest Regional will be televised on Fox Sports North, according to an official release from the sports network.
Game time is set for 6:30 p.m. from Fort Wayne, Ind. Bemidji State is the No. 2 seed in the region and Michigan is No. 3.
Fox Sports North obtained the rights from ESPN and will air the North Dakota-Yale first round game at 4 p.m.
FSN will not switch to the Beavers until the UND vs. Yale game is done. So if the game goes long or into overtime, that would delay when TV coverage of the BSU game begins.
"We are very appreciative of the efforts of Mike Dimond and Ryan Sirvio at Fox Sports North and the service they will be providing to Fighting Sioux hockey fans all over the region," said UND athletics director Brian Faison.
"With our team playing so far from Grand Forks, the ability for our fans to see the game live on television is very important and Fox Sports North has come through for us in a big way."
Fox Sports North is available to 3 million homes throughout Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
UND is the No. 2 seed in the Northeast Region and will take on the No. 3-seeded Yale Bulldogs at 4 p.m. from the DCU Center in Worcester, Mass.
If the Sioux win on Saturday, Sunday's regional championship game will be televised on ESPNU beginning at 4:30 p.m.
