Pairwise Situation After Friday's Games

We are halfway there in finding out who Boston College's next opponent will be as Friday's game are all finished up. In the Big Ten, Wisconsin edged by Penn State while Ohio State shocked #1 Minnesota. In the ECAC, Union ended Cornell's season while Colgate came back to beat Quinnipiac in double OT. In the WCHA, top seeds Ferris State and Minnesota State survived. In Hockey East, Lowell defeated Notre Dame while UNH beat Providence. In the NCHC, Miami upset North Dakota and will meet Denver, who beat Western Michigan, in the finals. Robert Morris will play Canisius in the Atlantic Hockey final. The NCHC consolation game has huge implications for North Dakota. They need to beat Western Michigan to get in. The Broncos are out regardless. Don't worry about the AHA winner, it doesn't matter. Robert Morris is currently in OT with Niagara but I need some sleep.

On top of all of this, if Miami wins tomorrow, BC cannot play them because the Red Hawks are the host school in the Midwest regional (Cincinnati). So, let's run through a scenarios.

Here are the teams we could play- Denver, Michigan, North Dakota, UNH, Minnesota State, or UNH

Here are my predictions for the games tomorrow nights games. 

Winners- Wisconsin, Robert Morris, Union, Lowell, Miami, North Dakota, and Ferris State all win. If this happens, BC will most likely play....

The University of North Dakota. O boy. 

Scenario #2- Ohio State, Canisius, Colgate, UNH, Denver, Western Michigan, and Minnesota State all win. If this happens, BC will most likely play....

The Ohio State University 

Scenario #3- Ohio State, Robert Morris, Union, UNH, Denver, Minnesota State, and Western Michigan all win, BC would play.....

The Ohio State University 

Last scenario for tonight- Wisconsin, Robert Morris, Union, Denver, Lowell, Minnesota State, and North Dakota all win....BC plays.....

The Denver Pioneers. 

That's it for tonight. We should know by this time tomorrow who we have next weekend.
