College Hockey:
Pickin’ the Big Ten, midweek edition

There’s one midweek game in the Big Ten this week. We’ll get our season picks record with the results from last weekend updated on Friday.

Bowling Green at Ohio State 

Drew: The Buckeyes captured their elusive first win last weekend against Robert Morris on Friday, and then added another one to the win column against the Colonials on Saturday. These two teams will complete their split up home-and-home series today; Bowling Green won 4-3 at home two weeks ago.

Paula: This will be the 176th meeting between the Falcons and Buckeyes; BGSU leads this series all-time 94-72-9. OSU is 3-1-3 against BGSU in the last seven contests, all of which have been played in Bowling Green. The Falcons last played Oct. 18-19, an impressive tie against and win over visiting Colgate, two games in which BGSU outscored Colgate 8-1.

Drew’s pick: I’m going to say Ohio State rides the momentum and picks up a 3-2 victory.
Paula’s pick: It’s difficult to call against the Falcons, who are 2-1-2 and have outscored opponents 17-12. I’m thinking that Drew’s onto something here, though. OSU 3-2.
