2012 NCAA Hockey schedule: No. 5 Miami (OH) headlines Three Rivers Classic

Alexander Hassenstein

The No. 5 Miami (OH) RedHawks headline the Three Rivers Classic college hockey tournament this weekend. Ohio State, Penn State and Robert Morris will need to play extremely well to knock off Miami.

The No. 5 Miami (OH) and Ohio State NCAA Division I men's hockey teams both return to action this weekend, as the Three Rivers Classic post-holiday tournament is set to unfold on Dec. 28 and 29. Miami, Ohio State, Robert Morris and Penn State are all part of this quick four-team tourney, and the No. 5 RedHawks are the only ranked team in the group -- though Ohio State and Robert Morris have both received votes in the latest USCHO poll.

Miami is the clear favorite to win the tournament, so it will be interesting to see how they respond to the pressure in their first neutral site games of the season. In fact, none of the teams in the field have played a neutral site game in 2012, so it will be a nice test for everyone involved.
