NCAA men's hockey action heats up this weekend as the No. 2 Minnesota Golden Gophers host the US Under-18 Team on Friday, No. 14 Minnesota-Duluth hosts Wisconsin, and St. Cloud State also hosts Minnesota State in a weekend series. Minnesota dropped from the No. 1 spot since the last USCHO.com poll, while Minnesota-Duluth fell one spot. Minnesota State and St. Could State are both among other teams receiving votes.

Duluth takes on Wisconsin at 7:05 p.m, CT on Friday and Saturday, while Minnesota only gets one game against the US Under-18 Team (Friday, 7:05 p,m. CT). As for the exclusively local series, the game on Friday starts at 7:35 CT and the second matchup on Saturday is set for 7:05 CT.

The season is still young, but a solid weekend would go a long way to shoring up the rankings for each team. Get the full schedule of college hockey action here, and be sure to check out the complete USCHO.com poll.
