Minnesota vs. St. Cloud State: Game Time, TV Schedule, Radio & More

The 10-2-0 University of Minnesota hockey team faces off against the 5-5-2 St. Cloud State University Huskies in a two game home-and-home series this weekend.  There isn't much love between the two State of Hockey teams - especially on the St. Cloud State end - and the proximity between the schools doesn't help matters. Friday's game is in St. Cloud while Saturday's game moves 90 miles down Interstate 94 to Minneapolis.

Both teams are coming off of road splits last weekend where they lost Friday and won Saturday. In the Huskies' case, they were playing at Minnesota State Mankato and the Gophers were in Madison playing the Wisconsin Badgers.

For the second straight week Minnesota enters the weekend as the nation's top-ranked college hockey team. St. Cloud State is unranked in either the USA Today or USCHO poll although they are receiving votes in the latter poll. Minnesota is first in the WCHA with a 7-1-0 conference record while St. Cloud State is seventh (out of twelve teams) with a 3-2-1 conference record.
