First, the good news, the University of North Dakota will be traveling back to Colorado to take on the Denver Pioneers. Those games originally scheduled for Friday and Saturday have been moved to Sunday and Monday.
Due to a COVID-19 outbreak at the University of Denver, those games were in question. However, Denver has passed their COVID-19 tests and are back on the ice. Even better news, CBS Sports Network will be carrying Monday’s game.
