Nov. 27	v Iowa State (3:00pm @ Max Bell Arena)

Dec. 29	@ Lakehead
Dec. 30	@ Lakehead
There is no Bisons v Moose game in Steinbach this year. Also gone are trips to Bemidji and Nebraska-Omaha.

However, the nice new feature is that they will play two new opponents at home (Carleton and Iowa State). I don't care for that 3rd game in 3 nights game at UND. It is too bad that on Sept 19 they will be playing Carleton whilst at 2:00 pm the Bison football homecoming game will be played next door. No doubt Carleton has a tight travel schedule.

I like what Sirant has done here, this shakes things up a bit - historically the Bisons played a few pre-season games against conference rivals and then had that brutal trip to Omaha. After the game against Regina we have some good home exhibition games and then play UND after 2 home games - better than the year they bused through the night from Regina and then played UND.
