ALLEN, TX, October 12, 2021 – The AMERICANS COLLEGE CLASSIC returns to the Credit Union of Texas Event Center (#RinkOfRed) this Sunday at 10:30 a.m. CT as the SMU Mustangs face the North Texas Mean Green prior to the AMERICANS’ home game against the Newfoundland Growlers at 2:05 pm.

This is the first year of the AMERICANS COLLEGE CLASSIC, which launched this past November featuring collegiate club hockey programs from Texas Christian University (TCU), Southern Methodist University (SMU), the University of North Texas (UNT), and Dallas Baptist University (DBU).

The inaugural event is presented, in part, by FAST SIGNS PLANO, which is owned by former AMERICANS Defenseman Nolan Descoteaux who played four seasons of college hockey at Rochester Institute of Technology from 2010 to 2014.

The first game of the Classic saw the DBU Patriots down the Horned Frogs of TCU by a score of 12-1 back on November 14.  DBU will play the winner of the SMU/UNT game for the Americans College Classic Championship on Saturday, March 5, at 3:30 p.m. CT.

The third-place game will take place on Friday, March 4, at 3:30 p.m. CT.  Both games will be played before Allen Americans games against the Idaho Steelheads.

Each game in the College Classic is paired with an AMERICANS ECHL game, allowing Season Ticket Members (STMs) and walk-up fans to double their hockey value, as seats for one game are usable as admission to the other that day.

Tickets for the College Classic are on sale now. Tickets for AMERICANS regular season home games, are also on sale now via Ticketmaster, as well as the club’s official website, AllenAmericans.com.
