Picking a North Dakota sweep again panned out for me. Both Matthew and I did well, as I went 8-1 (.888) and he went 7-2 (.777). On the year, I am 104-58-24 (.623) while he is 85-77-24 (.521).
We will wait to see how we do in the semifinal round before picking the championship and consolation games.

North Dakota vs. Denver
Candace: North Dakota has won four in a row, but Denver rides a 13-game win streak into this game, and wants to erase bad memories from last year’s Frozen Faceoff. Denver 4-2
Matthew: UND has to turn its Frozen Faceoff luck around sooner or later, but I don’t know if it happens here. Denver 3-2
Western Michigan vs. Minnesota Duluth
Candace: I could flip a coin and do better than guessing this, but I’m going Bulldogs. Minnesota Duluth 3-2
Matthew: Western found Omaha to be a tough out last weekend, and UMD’s a better team. I’m taking the Bulldogs here in a tight one. Minnesota Duluth 3-2
