In an effort to let defenseman Sean Erickson, a UConn graduate, watch his alma mater's football team in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, the Tulsa Oilers have announced a change in the start time for their game on Saturday, January 1 from 7:35 p.m. to 3 p.m. Central time.
The Oilers of the Central Hockey League play the Texas Brahmas that day at the BOK Center.
Erickson played college hockey at the University of Connecticut. The Huskies play in the Fiesta Bowl the night of January 1 against Oklahoma. The switch to an afternoon game time will allow fans to see the Oilers play Texas, then be home in time to watch the Fiesta Bowl.
Tickets for all Oiler games are available at the BOK Box Office, Tickets.com, Tulsa area Reasor's stores, and by calling 1-866-7BOK-CTR (866-725-5287). More information is available by calling the Oilers office at 918-632-PUCK (7825).
