In Week 14 of the season, the Division I men's hockey teams from Minnesota, Minnesota-Duluth and Minnesota State will all play in tournaments this weekend. No. 4 Minnesota will compete in the Mariucci Classic alongside No. 1 Boston College -- the two squads will meet on Sunday at 8:05 p.m. ET -- while Minnesota-Duluth will play in the Florida College Classic and No. 18 Minnesota State will try to advance through the UConn Hockey Classic.

The Mariucci Classic begins for Minnesota on Saturday with a contest against Air Force at 7:05 p.m. CT. The big matchup with BC is set for Sunday at the Mariucci Arena in Minneapolis, MN.

Minnesota-Duluth will play Maine on Friday in the Florida College Classic, and the result of that game will determine their path for the final round on Saturday.
