2013-14 MSU hockey schedule released

Andy Lyons

The first season of Big Ten hockey is coming, and MSU has released its full schedule.

You can see the whole thing by clicking here. Below are some notes.

- MSU plays a team from all six conferences.

- There are 21 home games.

- After opening the season at UMass, MSU hosts UMass-Lowell and Boston U for one game each. Lowell reached the Frozen Four last year

- MSU travels to Michigan Tech for the first time since 1984 for a two-game series.

- B1G play starts with a home series against Minnesota in early December.

- MSU plays Tech again at Comerica Park for the first game of the GLI. Michigan and Western Michigan play in the other semifinal.

- The first Michigan series is late January with a home game and one at The Joe. The other one is early March at Ann Arbor and then at home.

- MSU doesn't face Wisconsin until late January. Two of MSU's final three B1G series are against the Badgers. Could make the #BorderBattle more interesting, or less interesting.

- The B1G Tournament is in St. Paul, Minn.

It's daunting, but MSU should be an improved team, and B1G hockey will be good for the sport.
