        • I hear ya….especially on the injury concern. It can be tough to watch if both teams are in good shape in the PWR and thus not playing for much. Would probably be a big game for UMD if they end up there though.

        • Every game counts for a team close to the bubble….. UND a couple years ago. Definitely needed that game against Western Mich.
