Colorado College and Air Force are set for their rematch on the outdoor ice at Falcon Stadium.
CC blew out air force 6-2 on Friday night to keep the Pike's Peak troph
Now they have a chance to go to Falcon Stadium on a historic night and make a statement that they are the best hockey team in Colorado Springs.
"I'm so stoked," says Tigers forward Nick Halloran."It's been circled on a lot of our calenders and it's finally here. I think a lot of us are getting kind of giddy and childish but yeah we'repretty excited."
Air Force is hoping some home cooking will help them.
The Falcons could not capitalize on numerous opportunities on Friday night. The Tigers then scored three times in less than two and a half minutes in the second period to blow the game open.
Even with the Pike's Peak trophy staying with CC, there's still plenty of extra motivation for the game.
"For my class, we've played them four times now. We're 2-2 against them in my four years here," says Falcons' forward Brady Tomlak. "Trophy or not, unfortunately this year we don't have a chance to get that back. We do have a chance to win the series for my class and this other class. I don't care if there's no trophy at all. Playing these guys is a big time game for us."
The puck drops at 5:05.
