Picking the WCHA: Dec. 13-14

Well, last week was certainly interesting. As I was busy watching Michigan Tech prove me right with a sweep of Alaska Anchorage, I absolutely blew the Alaska/Bemidji State series, which went the opposite way from what I was thinking. Naturally, Jack picked it correctly, giving him the win for the week.

Daver last week: 5-2-1

Jack last week: 6-1-1

Daver this season: 43-24-6

Jack this season: 58-35-9


Alabama Huntsville at Ferris State

After a tough loss Friday on the road at Bowling Green, the Chargers are looking to continue to build off of a tie Saturday. The Bulldogs are fresh off a bye week after a tough road trip at Alaska Anchorage, where they captured five of a possible six points.

Daver: UAH wins Friday 2-1, FSU wins Saturday 4-1

Jack: FSU sweeps 4-2, 6-4


No. 10 Bowling Green at Lake Superior State

The Falcons head back out on the road after an interesting weekend at home against Alabama Huntsville. The Lakers bounced back from a 5-0 loss on Friday earlier this season against the Falcons and earned a 3-1. The Lakers look to use this weekend as a springboard as they head into the Catamount Cup in Vermont in late December.

Daver: BGSU wins Friday 4-1, LSSU wins Saturday, 2-1

Jack: BGSU sweeps 5-2, 5-4


No. 1 Minnesota State at Northern Michigan 

The Mavericks carry a nine-game winning streak into this weekend’s road trip to Marquette. The Wildcats split on the road with the Chargers two weeks ago. With a week to prep, they look to be the team to break the Mavericks’ run.

Daver: MSU sweeps 4-1, 5-2

Jack: MSU sweeps 4-2, 5-3


No. 4 Clarkson at Michigan Tech

Michigan Tech has seven losses on the season, but only one outside of WCHA play. They come into this non-conference matchup with the Green Knights having won seven of their last eight. The Green Knights are also hot of late, having won eight of their last nine coming into this weekend after defeating Yale and St. Lawrence. 

Daver: CU wins Friday 3-2, MTU wins Saturday 3-1

Jack: MTU wins Friday, 3-1, CU wins 4-3
