Well, here's a glance:
• RIT is Rochester Institute of Technology, not to be confused with RPI, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, which also has D-I hockey.
• The RIT Tigers play in the Atlantic Hockey Conference. They are 9-6-1 but had a national-best 10-game unbeaten streak going until their last game before winter break, a 3-2 loss to Niagara.
• RIT was a Division II/III team before moving up to D-I for the 2005-06 season.
• As a lower-division team, the Tigers do have some history with MSU. On their way to winning the national title in 1983, they knocked out then-Mankato State in a two-game, total-goals quarterfinal series. The Tigers and the Mavericks also met in 1987 in the national third-place game, with RIT winning 3-2.
