STATE CHAMPS: Beavers Take North Star College Cup Title

As I’m sure you already know if you have any interest in Beavers sports: The men’s hockey team won the North Star College Cup this weekend, beating No. 7 Minnesota Duluth 4-0 and No. 1 Minnesota State 3-1 en route to winning the trophy. It’s a big deal for the Beavers, who were basically an…

It’s Huntsville Week! And Other Post-vacation Observations

I’ve returned from my New Years’ vacation to Texas, where the 45 degree weather meant Houstonians were bundled up in parkas (not joking) while I spent much of the week either sick (got an ear infection on Dec. 31!) or walking around in shorts and flip flops while Texans gave me weird looks.

BEAVERS GAMEDAY: Game 17, BSU Vs. Northern Michigan

Bemidji State is back home for the final two games of the season before the holiday break.

BEMIDJI STATE VS. NORTH DAKOTA, ROUND 2

Live from the Sanford Center, it’s the Bemidji State home opener! (Imagine that in your best Don Pardo voice…. R.I.P.) As I type this we’re about 75 minutes from BSU’s home opener against North Dakota. As you may remember, the Beavers beat UND 5-1 last night in Grand Forks. It’s the first time since 1970…

BEAVER FOOTBALL GAMEDAY: BSU Vs. Sioux Falls

Bemidji State finally opens its home season tonight with a tilt against Sioux Falls. The teams are set to kick off at 6 p.m. in the 18th annual Shrine Game.

BSU Names Four Finalists Named For Women’s Hockey Job

Can’t get our website to work at the moment but I thought I’d at least throw a little something up here this way. BSU has named four finalists for the women’s hockey job left vacant by Steve Sertich’s retirement. Two have BSU ties: current assistant coach Amber Fryklund and former BSU goaltender Jim Scanlan. Also finalists…
