No. 1 on the horizon?

Minnesota State travels to Houghton, Mich., this weekend to take on Michigan Tech. Tech just might be No. 1 in the country by then after improving to 10-0-0 with a sweep at Bemidji State Friday and Saturday. The Huskies are the only undefeated team in the nation.

"Who would have thought we would be 10-0," coach Mel Pearson said. "I'm so happy for our players, fans and alumni. We're off to a good start, but we have a lot of hockey to go."

While it's waaaaaay too early to start taking the Pairwise Rankings seriously due to their volitility and the sport's obsession with them series to series, game to game, hour to hour, I must point out that, as of right now, the Mavericks-Huskies series will pit the top two teams in the rankings against each other.

Should be a fun series.

In other WCHA action over the weekend, Alabama Huntsville won a home game against a D1 opponent for the first time since 2010-11, beating Lake Superior State 5-2 on Saturday for a series split. The Lakers won Friday's game 1-0. ... Bowling Green split a series against Ohio State, bringing the WCHA's record against Big Ten teams to 10-4-1. ... Ferris State swept Alaska Anchorage on Thursday and Friday, outscoring the Seawolves 14-2.
