OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The University of Nebraska at Omaha will play an outdoor hockey game at TD Ameritrade Park next season.

One of the people organizing the game, speaking Monday on the condition of anonymity because details won't be announced until Tuesday, said the opponent will be North Dakota.

A United States Hockey League game between the Omaha Lancers and Lincoln Stars also will be played outdoors. They will be the first hockey games played at 24,000-seat TD Ameritrade Park, home of the College World Series.

At least 18 college hockey games have been played outdoors since Michigan State and Michigan met at Spartan Stadium in October 2001. Most recently, Ohio State and Michigan played before 25,864 at Progressive Field in Cleveland on Jan. 15.
