Both Nicole and I picked the semifinal games correctly. It’s now down to two teams. Thanks to everyone for supporting us during the year. I hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as we have. On the year, I am now 345-118-63 (.715), while Nicole is 318-145-63 (.664).

Minnesota versus Wisconsin
Candace: These two split four games during the regular season, then Wisconsin dominated the Gophers in the WCHA final. Wisconsin looks like it’s on a mission, but the Gophers won’t make it easy. Will the pressure get to the Badgers? In some ways, the Badgers reminds me of the USA women’s soccer team in 2015. I’m going with Wisconsin. Wisconsin 2-1
Nicole: I’m going with my gut and saying Wisconsin wins it all this year. Wisconsin 2-1
