ESPN Announces 2018 NCAA Frozen Four Broadcast Schedule

Courtesy: ESPN

College basketball’s championship has officially been awarded and the season has come to an end once again.  Now with its finale has come and gone, it’s college hockey’s turn.

The NCAA’s Frozen Four has officially been set, and two of the teams in this year’s Frozen Four are some familiar names — Michigan and Notre Dame.  The other two teams that round out this year’s semifinal round are Minnesota Duluth and Ohio State.

Semifinal coverage starts on the ESPN networks starts this Thursday, April 5 at 6 p.m. on ESPN2 as the Bulldogs take on the Buckeyes vie for one of the two spots in this year’s college hockey championship. The other pairing hits the ice later that night at 9:30 ET on ESPN2.

The winners of those two semifinal matchups will take to the ice for the NCAA college hockey championship Saturday, April 7 at 7:30 p.m. on ESPN.  John Buccigross, barry Melrose and Quint Kessenich will have the call for the sixth consecutive year at this year’s championship countdown.

2018 marks the second consecutive year that the Bulldogs have made an appearance in the NCAA Frozen Four.  Minnesota Duluth made it all the way to the championship round last season.  For the Buckeyes, this year is the first year since 1998 that the team has been part of the Frozen Four.

Notre Dame is a hands on favorite to win this year’s tournament, having already made it into the Frozen Four last year and into the overall college hockey championship over the past two years straight.  The Fighting Irish also won the Big Ten regular season championship and the conference tournament, leading to a #2 overall seeding for the college hockey championship tournament.

Michigan is making its 25th appearance in the Frozen Four this year, but its first since 2011.  The school already has nine college hickey national championships to its credit, but hasn’t actually won the title since 1998, giving the Wolverines plenty to play for this year.

More information on this year’ NCAA Frozen Four championship coverage is available online now along with all of the latest college hockey news at:

ESPN Inks New Extension With Sun Belt Conference

Courtesy: ESPN

ESPN has inked a new deal with the Sunbelt Conference.

The new deal takes the partnership between the worldwide leader in sports and the conference through the 20207-’28 season.  The groups’ current contract was set to expire at the end of the 2019-’20 season, extending that deal out an additional eight seasons.

The new agreement makes ESPN the exclusive broadcast partner of the Sunbelt Conference, giving coverage to more than 500 conference-controlled events across the conference’s 18 sports on the ESPN television networks and on ESPN+.  Burke Magnus, ESPN Executive Vice President of Scheduling and Acquisitions said the new deal was a boon both for ESPN and for the Sunbelt Conference.

“ESPN has a long, mutually beneficial relationship with the Sun Belt, dating back to our foundational years,” Magnus said.  “We are thrilled to take that relationship to a new level via this new innovative and exclusive extension, while also deepening our commitment to serving college sports fans.  More Sun Belt events and content than ever will now be available to fans however they choose to consume them in a more personalized and targeted manner.”

Karl Benson, Sun Belt Conference Commissioner, agreed.

“The continuation of our agreement with ESPN marks one of the most historic announcements since the Sun Belt’s founding in 1976,” Benson said.  “This is truly an ‘all in’ collaboration with ESPN, the Sun Belt, and our member institutions, and the volume of accessibility of our games will have a profound impact on the future of the Sun Belt.  We have enjoyed a long relationship with ESPN since its founding in 1979, and we look forward to being featured on its newest platform, ESPN+, which promises to revolutionize how fans of the Sun Belt and of all college sports watch their favorite teams in action.”
