WCHA Releases Schedule, Beavers Release Theirs

Yesterday’s big news (aside from the ticket availability for this weekend’s Gophers series) was the WCHA releasing its full 2013-14 conference schedule.

As you can see from the release, the league did a great job of including Alabama-Huntsville so quickly after the Chargers’ official induction was announced.

Also released Thursday afternoon: Bemidji State’s (tentative?) schedule for the 13-14 campaign.

(EDIT: Just in case, I’m posting a screencap of the schedule here for posterity. Haven’t seen any other teams post theirs online yet.)

Interestingly, the Beavers appear to have only four nonconference series, and two of them are set for the very beginning of the year: at St. Cloud State Oct. 11-12 and at home against Minnesota Oct. 18-19.

BSU will also host Miami Nov. 29-30 and have a home-and-home against North Dakota Jan. 17-18 (home Friday, in Grand Forks Saturday).

As far as the conference slate goes, the Beavers get their first taste of the renewed Huntsville rivalry right off the bat – they travel to Alabama Oct. 25-26, the first weekend of league play.

The very next weekend, BSU comes home to host MSU-Mankato.

In all, each league team is playing 28 league games, split equally between home and road.

But not every team is going to play an equal amount of home-and-homes. That means the Beavers avoid making two treks to Alaska (this year). BSU won’t see Bowling Green or Michigan Tech at home, but don’t have to travel to Anchorage (they do go to Fairbanks).

What are your thoughts on the new-look BSU schedule?

  1. They are not backing down from anyone in non-conference play.

    Miami-this year’s CCHA Champion
    Minnesota, St. Cloud and North Dakota, the top three in the WCHA

    But yes, next year will be a different year, but based on this year, that is a tough non-conference schedule.

    I think the beavers have an awesome schedule. I think people should come support their team by showing up at the games. I thought bemidji was the Green Bay packers of college hockey. Come on Beaver fans.
