Liberty University's undefeatedwomen's hockey team (9-0) will face tough competition this weekend as it takes on national champion Michigan State (4-0) at the LaHaye Ice Center.

Michigan State won the ACHA National Championship last year and ended the 2010-11 season with a 14-7 conference record; Liberty finished with a 7-9 record.
