North Star College Cup schedule change

The North Star College Cup will move from a Friday-Saturday format to a Saturday-Sunday format this year, the University of Minnesota announced on Tuesday.

Perhaps in a move to boost attendance for the tournament's first game, games will take place at 1 and 5 p.m. each day.

Minnesota State has the first game this year, taking on St. Cloud State on Saturday, Jan. 30. Minnesota and Bemidji State will follow with Minnesota Duluth sitting out this year's tournament. The two losing teams will play at 1 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 31, with the two winners playing at 5 p.m.

This will be the third year of the North Star College Cup. Bemidji State won last year, defeating Minnesota State in the championship game.
