North Star College Cup 2017

This weekend the Bulldog get the opportunity to rekindle an old flame playing the Gophers in the North Star College Cup.  Coming into this tournament the Bulldogs are the only team that has won the Cup.  They have come close losing in a shootout in the first year of the event.  There is more on the line now that it has been announced that this is the final year.  The question has been brought up who will keep the Cup?  The Gophers who organized the event or the this years champion if it is someone other than the Gophers?

North Star College Cup
#2 Minnesota Duluth vs. #6 Minnesota Twin Cities:  The Bulldogs goaltending has been considerable better than the Gophers this year and that will carry them to victory.  UMD Win.

#20 Bemidji State vs. St. Cloud State:  The Beavers started hot but they have been a .500 team since hosting Princeton at Thanksgiving.  Blitzer has been good between the pipes.  The Huskies are very inconsistent with average goaltending.  I am picking the Beavers.  

Based on my picks, I am going with a Bulldogs victory in the championship since they have been the most consistent and best team of the group this year.  Likewise, the Gophers will beat the Huskies as well.  

#12 North Dakota @ Colorado College:  The Tigers have yet to win at home this season and the Fighting Hawks are a better road team than home will lead to a Fight Hawks sweep.

#18 Nebraska Omaha @ #3 Denver:  These should be two good games as the Mavericks have played great on the road this year.  Split.

#10 Western Michigan @ Miami:  The Broncos are for real and a very good team.  Having said that, I can't see the Broncos leaving Oxford with a season sweep, so I will go with a split.
