GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - It’s a big day in sports for the University of North Dakota.

The men’s hockey team plays Wisconsin in the first round of the Midwest Regional in Cincinnati. The winner advances to Saturday’s title game against either Ferris State or Colgate. The regional champion goes on to the Frozen Four in Philadelphia in mid-April.

The football team also is holding the first of 15 spring practices. It’s the first spring practice for new coach Bubba Schweigert. He’s replacing Chris Mussman, who was fired late last year after six seasons.
