Altitude set to televise Denver at CC game Nov. 16

From CC sports information …

It’s official. Altitude Sports has a special treat on tap for hockey fans in Colorado and nine other western states this fall.

The Denver-based network announced this week that it will televise Colorado College’s game against the University of Denver from the World Arena on Friday, Nov. 16.
The scheduled telecast starts at 7:30 p.m. MT and features the initial meeting of the season between the archrivals, who battle four times annually for the coveted Gold Pan.
“Given the storied hockey history of Colorado College and DU,” said Doug Ballmer, senior director of programming for Altitude, “We are thrilled to be able to bring our viewers the season’s first match-up between these two longtime rivals.”
Seen in more than 3.1 million homes in its 10-state territory, Altitude is the television home of the Colorado Avalanche, Denver Nuggets, Colorado Rapids, Colorado Mammoth, Colorado Eagles, Denver Outlaws, the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference, ESPN Syndication (including Big 12 Conference and Western Athletic Conference events,) as well as other local and regional sports, entertainment and public service programming. Its programming also is available nationally to DirecTV and DISH sports package subscribers.
The Tigers, who went 2-1-1 against Denver last season, claimed possession of the Gold Pan for the 11th time in 19 years since inception of the trophy in 1993-94. The teams have played each other 283 times since the rivalry began more than 60 years ago. Colorado College owns a 19-8-4 edge, including a 4-3 overtime victory and 2-2 tie in 2011-12, in 31 all-time meetings at the World Arena.
“We are thrilled to partner with Altitude for one of our biggest games of the season,” said Scott Lowenberg, associate athletics director at CC. “The production with top announcers and a network available throughout the United States is huge for Tiger Hockey. Having the opportunity to televise this game from our home arena is a reflection of what head coach Scott Owens and his team have accomplished on the ice.”
The 2012-13 season opener is just 10 days away, as the Tigers play host to the University of British Columbia in a single exhibition game at 6:07 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 7.
