Game 1: UMD vs Minnesota (Ice-Breaker)

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Here we go from the shadow of Touchdown Jesus, as the Bulldogs kick off the 2014-15 campaign. It's a season full of promise for UMD, and it starts with a hell of a challenge against No. 1 Minnesota.

The Gophers are atop the rankings for a reason, and it isn't just the program's near-sterling reputation in college hockey. It's because Minnesota has nearly everyone back from a team that played for the national championship. They're favored in this game, and they're favored to go a long way this season. It's all for good reason, too.

Of course, that doesn't help anyone win games on the ice. UMD gave Minnesota fits last season, outside of about ten minutes of the first meeting where the wheels done fell right off. If that trend continues, this will be a great way to kick off the season.
