There are two big league series this weekend, and this is the one that you may not think about.  Ferris State has 22 points to Alaska’s 19, and a strong weekend from the Bulldogs pushes them up against Bowling Green and Minnesota State, who promise to beat each other up this weekend, and moves them past Alabama-Huntsville, who seems to be in a free-fall at this point (although BELOW has never believed in them).

I expect Ferris to sweep.  Travel is always hard for the Alaska schools, and the Nanooks are also coming off of the break and may be rusty (if rested).
