Preview: Nebraska-Omaha

Team: Nebraska Omaha
Record: 10-11-3 (CCHA) 14-12-6 (Overall)
Time: Friday February 12 and Saturday February 13, 7:05 PM CST
Where: Qwest Center Omaha, NE

Coming off of Michigan's split series sweep against Bowling Green, Michigan travels to Nebraska to take on UNO. UNO currently sits in a tie for 5th place in the CCHA standings with Alaska, with a total of 35 points. Michigan sits in 4th with 37 points, and also has two games in hand against UNO.

UNO is backstopped by John Faulkner and Jeremie Dupont. In their last few games, UNO has used a goalie rotation, so do not be surprised to see both goalies this weekend. Faulkner sports a 2.56 GAA and a .903 Save %, while Dupont sports a 3.14 GAA and a .882 Save %.

Michigan needs to at least split this series, if not sweep it. They are currently ranked 19th in the Parwise Rankings and 19th in RPI. Michigan needs to be ranked at least 15th to be considered a bubble team.*

Tune in on Sunday for a (very brief) recap of both games.
