MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – The Beavers looked anything but road-weary Monday night at the Maysa Arena. Playing their third game in four days, and after a weekend road-trip to Nebraska, the top-ranked Minot State hockey team dominated early, broke the game open with a second-period offensive onslaught, and skated to a 7-0 win at home over visiting Colorado State. Carter Barley picked up his fourth career hat trick, and second of the season, scoring three goals in the win while Landyn Cochrane added two goals and three assists for the Beavers (18-1-0 overall), who hit the road now to play Illinois State, Central Oklahoma, and Oklahoma on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at the Central Oklahoma Classic. Jake Anthony stopped all 21 shots he faced in goal for Minot State, earning his third shutout this season and the sixth of his career. Cochrane ended up with the game-winner, scoring the first goal of the night just 1 minute, 22 seconds into the contest, and the Beavers never let up. Reece Henry added a first-period goal for 2-0 lead, then Minot State blew the game open in the second as Jay Buchholz scored with 9:21 gone in the stanza, then Cochrane made it 4-0 at the 12:30 mark. Barley then scored his first two of the game before the end of the period, just 30 seconds apart, for a comfortable 6-0 lead. Barley then finished career hat-trick No. 4 with the game’s final goal with 4:48 remaining in the Beavers win.
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Following a pair of comeback victories over Lindenwood, two North Dakota players were honored by the National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC) for the first time in their careers on Monday. Junior Tyler Kleven was named the NCHC Defenseman of the Week while freshman Ben Strinden garnered NCHC Rookie of the Week, as the Fargo, N.D. products shined in the two wins over the Lions.
Kleven had a massive weekend offensively, scoring four goals in a sweep of Lindenwood, including both game-winning goals. The Ottawa Senators prospect tallied two goals both nights for the first two multi-goal games of his college career. They were only his second and third career multi-point games as a Fighting Hawk, as well. In Friday’s series opener, Kleven helped UND rally from 3-1 down to a 4-3 win. He blasted a power play goal to make it a 3-2 game, before scoring the game-winner on the power play with 3:15 left in regulation. A night later, Kleven did it again, helping turn a 2-0 deficit into a 4-2 victory. On Saturday he tied the game at 2-2 even strength, then scored his third power play goal and second game-winner of the weekend to break the 2-2 tie with 8:04 left in regulation. The Fargo, N.D., native completed the series with four points, tying for the most of any NCHC player on the weekend, while his four goals led all NCHC players. He fired a career-high seven shots on goal in Saturday’s win and ended with an NCHC-best 11 shots on the weekend. Kleven also posted a +3 rating, while helping UND finish the weekend 3-for-7 on the power play and 3-for-4 on the penalty kill against the Lions. Kleven now has seven career game-winning goals, tying for the second-most among defensemen in North Dakota history. On the season, he now has five goals and 11 points after entering with only one goal and seven points all year. 
Strinden doubled his season point total last weekend, picking up three points in the sweep of Lindenwood. In Friday’s opener, he dished out the primary assist on the game-tying goal in the third period to complete a two-goal comeback as UND went on to win, 4-3. The next night, he recorded his second career multi-point game, again helping North Dakota rally for a 4-2 win. Trailing 2-0, Strinden scored his second goal of the season early in the second period to get UND on the board, then assisted on the game-tying goal less than five minutes later.  The rookie completed the series with a goal and two assists, while firing four shots on goal, including three on Saturday. He also posted a +2 rating. Strinden now has two goals and four assists for six points in 12 games this season. 
North Dakota remains home for a showdown against No. 12 Western Michigan on Friday and Saturday night from Ralph Engelstad Arena in Grand Forks, N.D. 
INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Stetson Bennett threw two touchdown passes and ran for two scores in the first half as No. 1 Georgia demolished No. 3 TCU 65-7 to become the first team to win consecutive College Football Playoff national championships. The Bulldogs became the first repeat champs since Alabama went back-to-back a decade ago and left no doubt that they have replaced the Crimson Tide as the new bullies on the block. TCU, the first Cinderella team of the CFP era, never had a chance against the Georgia juggernaut and suffered the most lopsided loss in a national title game dating to the start of the BCS in 1998.
