NBC has long been known as the home of Notre Dame football. NBC and their NBC Sports Network have also become known as the home for hockey. Starting tonight, you'll see sort of marriage of those two well known NBC-related brands. In a move that was announced years ago but never gone into detail upon, NBCSN will become the home of Notre Dame hockey, in much the same way as NBC is the home of the Fighting Irish football team. Over the next three season, NBCSN will air 12 Notre Dame home games. In an interesting addition to the deal, eight other Fighting Irish home games will air exclusively on the NBC Sports Live Extra app. It joins select EPL matches as part of the programming NBC has built up solely for their streaming app. NBCSN and NBC Sports Live Extra, overall, will broadcast about 30 college hockey games this season. Between NBCSN, CBSSN, BTN and a little help from ESPN and Fox affiliated networks, the sport is really beginning to come into its own. However, I must express a little annoyance that the conference who produced both participants in college hockey's national championship game, the ECAC, are largely left untelevised. 2013-14 NBC Sports College Hockey Schedule Date/Time Game Network Oct. 11, 8 p.m. ET Western Michigan vs. Notre Dame NBCSN Oct. 18, 7:30 p.m. ET Michigan Tech vs. Notre Dame NBC Sports Live Extra Oct. 25, 8 p.m. ET UMass vs. Maine NBCSN Nov. 1, 8 p.m. ET Northeastern vs. Boston College NBCSN Nov. 8, 7:30 p.m. ET Minnesota vs. Notre Dame NBCSN Nov. 9, 7 p.m. ET Minnesota vs. Notre Dame NBC Sports Live Extra Nov. 15, 7:30 p.m. ET Merrimack vs. Notre Dame NBCSN Nov. 16, 7 p.m. ET Merrimack vs. Notre Dame NBC Sports Live Extra Nov. 22, 7:30 p.m. ET North Dakota vs. Boston University NBCSN Nov. 29, 7:30 p.m. ET Alabama-Huntsville vs. Notre Dame NBC Sports Live Extra Nov. 30, 7:30 p.m. ET Shillelagh Tournament Final NBC Sports Live Extra Dec. 6, 7:30 p.m. ET UMass vs. Notre Dame NBCSN Dec. 7, 6:30 p.m. ET UMass vs. Notre Dame NBCSN Dec. 13, 7:30 p.m. ET Colorado College vs. Wisconsin NBCSN Jan. 10, 7:30 p.m. ET Alabama-Huntsville vs. Notre Dame NBCSN Jan. 11, 7 p.m. ET Alabama-Huntsville vs. Notre Dame NBC Sports Live Extra Jan. 11, 8 p.m. ET Yale vs. Harvard NBCSN Jan. 17, 7:30 p.m. ET Lake Superior State vs. Notre Dame NBCSN Jan. 18, 6:30 p.m. ET Penn State vs. Michigan State NBCSN Jan. 18, 7 p.m. ET Lake Superior State vs. Notre Dame NBC Sports Live Extra Jan. 24, 7:30 p.m. ET Northeastern vs. Notre Dame NBCSN Jan. 25, 7 p.m. ET Northeastern vs. Notre Dame NBCSN Jan. 31, 7:30 p.m. ET Boston University vs. UMass NBCSN Feb. 1, 6:30 p.m. ET Wisconsin vs. Michigan NBCSN Feb. 7, 7:30 p.m. ET Maine vs. Notre Dame NBCSN Feb. 8, 8 p.m. ET Maine vs. Notre Dame NBCSN Feb. 14, 7 p.m. ET Boston University vs. Notre Dame NBCSN Feb. 15, 8 p.m. ET Wisconsin vs. Ohio State NBCSN Feb. 21, 7 p.m. ET Boston University vs. Notre Dame NBCSN Feb. 22, 7 p.m. ET Boston University vs. Notre Dame NBC Sports Live Extra Mar. 1, TBD Penn State vs. Minnesota NBCSN
