Look back at last week’s forecast
Prediction of UND’s PWR after this weekend
After the excitement of last week’s forecast, in which UND’s PWR was unnaturally high such that a split made a fall in ranking very likely, this week’s forecast is a bit more boring. In fact, it looks a lot like last week’s. From #13, UND is likely to rise a couple spots with a sweep, fall a couple spots getting swept, and stay about where they are if they split.
Games to watch
Minnesota over Colorado College (sweep helps UND 1.2)
Mass.-Lowell over Maine (sweep helps UND 1.1, single win helps .76)
Miami over Nebraska-Omaha (sweep helps UND .87)
Vermont over New Hampshire (sweep helps UND .84)
Merrimack over Massachusetts (sweep helps UND .78, single win helps .63)
St. Lawrence/Clarkson over Yale (sweep helps UND .78, single win helps .61)
Look ahead to end of regular season
UND remains in the driver’s seat. To finish the regular season in a tournament-likely position (e.g. #13 in PWR or better) would require winning 4 of the remaining 6.
