PICK: I’m going with North Dakota. The Hawks have struggled at certain points this season so far, but they’re doing fairly well in comparable matchups after this seven-game opening stretch.

I don’t think the Hawks will have too much difficulty keeping the pace versus CSU Fullerton if they’re on their game.
