None of the regional or national TV networks were interested in broadcasting the first two games of the annual series between Colorado College and Denver, said Scott Lowenberg, CC associate athletic director, external relations.

"We definitely didn't tell anyone, 'No, they couldn't televise it,'" he said Friday. "We would have loved to be on TV tonight and/or tomorrow."

Some Tigers alumni and fans living outside the state contacted The Gazette about seeing the rivalry game on a national or regional network.

Both February CC-DU games will be broadcast. CBS Sports Network will show the Feb. 21 game at Denver while Altitude will have Feb. 22 at World Arena.
