It's another week and another schedule change for UND.

The game on Friday, Feb., 12 will be played at 7:37 p.m. The series finale on Saturday, Feb. 13 will be played at 6:07 p.m. Both games will be televised by Midco Sports Network.

There will be a presale for UND season-ticket holders at 10 a.m. Friday. It will run through 10 a.m. Monday. Unused tickets will be available for the general public. Tickets are $79 for lower body and $49 for upper bowl.

The change is being made to accommodate Colorado College's schedule after the Tigers had to quarantine due to a positive COVID-19 test and contact tracing.

The league pushed back Colorado College's series against Omaha one week to Feb. 12-13, and the Mavericks' series against Denver has been moved up to Feb. 5-6.

Schedule changes have been frequent since UND left the NCHC Pod in December, where all 10 of its games were played as scheduled.

UND had two series against Omaha pushed back, a series against Colorado College moved up and now a series against Denver pushed back.

The Fighting Hawks are 12-3-1 overall and sit in first play in the NCHC standings with eight regular-season games left.
