In the Central Division this weekend, division-leading Minot is at home twice, as they host the Aberdeen Wings.  In other action, the Brookings Blizzard are in Bismarck to take on the Bobcats for a pair of games.

In the Midwest Division, the big match-up sees the 1st place Janesville Jets go on the road for a pair of games against the 2nd place Minnesota Magicians, who are 15 points back and trying to gain ground.

In the South Division, division-leading Lone Star is in for a big test as the travel to Wichita Falls for a pair of games against the 2nd place Wildcats. Corpus Christi and Amarillo are tied for 4th place in the South with 34 points and will face one another in a two-game set in Amarillo.
