WCHA Pick: Feb. 24-25

Note: Penn State and Wisconsin are set to take part in a rare Sunday-Monday series in Madison, Wis.. The two-game set was pushed back due to the Wisconsin high school wrestling championships taking place at UW’s Kohl Center over the past few days.

Penn State at No. 18 Wisconsin:
Matthew: I can’t get over a nagging feeling that this could be a trap series for the Badgers. UW is certainly a better team than Penn State, but Guy Gadowsky has done a terrific job in State College so far, and the Nittany Lions would love to finish their first Division I season on a high note on Sunday and Monday in Madison. Do I think PSU will beat the Badgers in either game? No, but I wouldn’t be surprised if UW didn’t won both. I’m picking the Nittany Lions to pick up a tie in one of the games – Just enough to give both sets of fans something to think about before these two clubs start playing for Big Ten league points next season.

Tyler: Penn State has been able to hang with some of the middle-of-the-road Division I teams it’s played this season, going 2-1 against its future Big Ten opponents. The Badgers don’t necessarily have the offensive spark to bury the Nittany Lions, but UW has a defense like nothing PSU has seen. Wisconsin sweep
