PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Cross Insurance Arena in Portland will host an off-campus hockey game between the University of Maine and University of New Hampshire.

The game is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Saturday. Maine Black Bears hockey coach Red Gendron announced plans for the much-anticipated game in August 2013. The Hockey East rivals typically play each other on campus sites.

Cross Insurance Arena is considerably closer to UNH than UMaine, which could make for a crowd of mixed allegiance. The downtown Portland arena is about 60 miles from UNH’s Durham campus and nearly 140 miles from UMaine’s Orono campus.

UMaine and UNH are longtime hockey rivals whose fans sometimes call the teams’ meetings the “Border War.”
