UND, Minnesota to renew hockey rivalry in 3 years

Posted:

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) -- The University of North Dakota and the University of Minnesota will renew their storied hockey rivalry in three years.

The two NCAA Division I powerhouses have agreed to terms on a two-year deal that will renew a rivalry that dates back to 1930.

The Gophers will host North Dakota for a two-game series during the 2016-17 season and then travel to Grand Forks for a series the following season. Dates for both series will be determined later.

The former Western Collegiate Hockey Association foes played each year from 1948 to 2013 before conference realignment put Minnesota in the Big Ten and UND in the National Collegiate Hockey Conference.

The two programs have combined for a dozen national championships.
