Obviously, the best case scenario is that Michigan wins both games next weekend and takes the CCHA auto-bid, but is it possible they sneak in with a split? The current pairwise has Michigan tied at 15. The top 14 will make the tournament if there are no upset tournament champs. Michigan is tied with UMD whose season is over. UNH is one spot ahead of Michigan,and their season was just ended by Vermont in overtime. Alaska is at 12, and their season is also over. A split would mean getting a win over #2 Miami, #8 Ferris, or #11 NMU. Would that be enough? We'll know more once the pairwise predictor comes online tonight/tomorrow morning. Just wanted to get people's impression.
