Some intriguing matchups this weekend:
#9 Adrian at #1 Oswego (1/8) – The Bulldogs come in for a single game. This would have been an even more anticipated game before last weekend, when Adrian was swept by Hamline for its first two losses of the season. The Bulldogs dropped from No. 4 to No. 9 as a result.
#2 Plattsburgh at #6 Elmira (1/9) – The Cardinals are coming off a loss on Tuesday to Norwich. One of the biggest non-conference rivalries in D-III.
#3 Norwich at Bowdoin (1/8) and Colby (1/9) – This trip is always a tough one, and will present one of the few remaining challenges for the Cadets (the Middlebury/Williams trip in early February being another).
#4 St. Norbert at Concordia (MN) (1/8) – It’s a ten hour bus ride from Green Bay to Moorhead, Minn. The Green Knights will play St. John’s on the way back on Saturday.
#5 St. Scholastica at #7 Hamline (1/8) – A nice matchup between a pair of teams having good seasons.
University of New England at New England College – Just because I can imagine how confusing this will be for the radio broadcasters.
