More importantly, the Tigers are No. 22 in the Pairwise rankings, well short of the 15th spot needed to make the NCAA Tournament if it started today.

Notice who was in first? That’s right, Ferris State is No. 1 for the first time in school history.

The outdoor game between Nebraska Omaha and North Dakota will officially be announced on Tuesday.

MSU-Mankato won 2-1 Saturday night for a sweep at Alaska Anchorage. Here’s the latest standings:
