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 Minnesota schools playing NCAA Division I men’s hockey will be split among three conferences next season. They’ll still try to make intra-state games an annual January event.
