The University of Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs and the U of M Gophers have found out who they'll be facing and where in NCAA Division 1 men's college hockey finals.

The Bulldogs, who on Saturday beat North Dakota in the final of the NCHC Frozen Four, are ranked No. 1 in the West Regional finals and No. 2 overall.

Bulldogs fans won't have too far to go as their team will play in Fargo in the first round, as they take on Ohio State at 5:30 p.m. central time Friday, which will be shown live on ESPNU.

If they make it past Ohio State, the Bulldogs face a re-match with North Dakota in the quarter finals, provided they get past Boston U.

The Gophers meanwhile are the No. 1 seed in the Northeast Regional finals and No. 4 overall. They will face Notre Dame in Manchester, New Hampshire this coming Saturday at 2:30 p.m. central on ESPNU.

UMass Lowell or Cornell await the winners in the quarters.

Denver are the No. 1 overall seed, with Harvard No. 3.
