#2 seed Nebraska-Omaha will face off against #4 seed RIT in Sunday's Midwest Regional final at the Compton Family Ice Arena on Notre Dame's campus. RIT will be looking to qualify for their second Frozen Four, last making it in 2010. Nebraska-Omaha picked up their first NCAA Tournament win ever last night, and will be looking to make their first Frozen Four in program history.
The game is scheduled to start at 7:37 EST. The game can be seen on television on ESPNU in the United States and TSN2 in Canada. It will also be available for streaming online on ESPN3 or the TSN Go app for those with a valid cable subscription.
Here is tonight's line-up for Nebraska-Omaha. The only line-up change is that fourth-line forward Aaron Pearce is back on defense tonight, replacing Matt Youso.
RIT's line-up hasn't been posted yet, but is expected to be the same as it was for last night's upset win over Minnesota State.
As was the case yesterday, RIT comes into this game as a huge underdog. They'll try to pack things in around their own net and block enough shots to keep this a low-scoring game and hope for a lucky bounce to go their way. Omaha got off to a fast start last night, scoring in the game's first two minutes, and that set the tone for the game, allowing them to play with the lead and just worry about defending their own net. As with any NCAA Tournament game, the first goal will be critically important in setting the tone for this game.
