FOOTBALL: Beavers win Mineral Water Bowl for first ever postseason victory

Up North Sports Report: Bemidji State-North Dakota will grow into classic WCHA rivalry

Our Bemidji State men's hockey beat writer, John J. McRae, was able to get a look at the hockey schedule for the 2010-11 season on Tuesday.

I'm sure the WCHA fan is asking, "Rivalry between UND and BSU? Are you crazy?"
