GRAND FORKS, N.D. — Tickets for this weekend's college hockey series between longtime rivals North Dakota and Minnesota are selling for hundreds of dollars.

The Friday and Saturday games at Mariucci Arena in Minneapolis are the last time the two schools will play as members of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association, barring a playoff matchup. It also will be the last time they will play in the regular season for at least a few years.

UND next season is moving to the National Collegiate Hockey Conference and Minnesota is going to the Big Ten. There are no future games scheduled between the teams.

The Grand Forks Herald reports that tickets for Saturday's game are selling online for as much as $425.
