Get the winter classic out of the east! Do a couple of western teams next year.

Thanks for the heads up.

Wrenn actually played this past weekend against Northern Michigan, but not sure how many minutes he played in each game.

Interesting decision by Wrenn. Seems that injuries really slowed down his development at DU more than lack of playing time.

With Ryder having a redshirt season under his belt, I'm guessing that he will be back next season.

DU still has six elite Dmen on the roster.
