Okay, okay. Maybe the rumors of Upstate's demise were greatly exaggerated. For the second season in a row, they dismantled their opponent. This season it was a clean sweep. Upstate defeats Midwest 9-0.
Impressive, I admit. Now let's see them do it in the NT.
The only good news for all of us though: we can officially go back to hating Upstate.

Michigan is no longer the "rented mule." I guess that's Minnesota's role now. Ugh.
Michigan beats Minnesota 5-4.
Michigan faces Upstate in the Championship.
Midwest faces Minnesota in the Consolation.
Thanks for the participation again, ladies and gentlemen!
