According to last year's UMD media guide, Friday's 6-2 win over Ohio State marks UMD's most lopsided season-opening victory since a 12-4 win over U.S. International to kick off the 1985-86 season.
(That doesn't count exhibitions, since exhibition games don't count in the standings.)
The previous mark under Scott Sandelin was a 5-2 victory over Nebraska-Omaha in the 2002 Maverick Stampede.
This is a different day, however, and I think it's safe to assume we will see a different game. Expect Ohio State to be better, and expect the conditioning of both squads -- which have been practicing officially for all of about a week, mind you -- to be tested.
