*Disclosure: I have an ongoing media relationship with 313 Presents. The opinions expressed here, however, are my own.

I had a great time at Duel in the D last year—I'm a UM alum, but I had only ever seen ONE hockey game in my life at that point, and this was the second one. 

I'm looking forward to it again this year, and one of my lucky readers will win a 4-pack of tickets to experience it as well!

About the game:
The return of college hockey is headed to Little Caesars Arena with the annual “Duel in the D,” presented by Meijer, set for Saturday, February 10 at 8:30 p.m. 

The fans of Hockeytown will be treated to one of the most intense and exciting rivalries in college hockey, as the Michigan Wolverines and Michigan State Spartans men’s ice hockey teams will add another chapter in their storied rivalry and clash for the “Iron D” Trophy. 

The “Duel in the D” matchup features the most-played rivalry in college hockey. The game will mark the 346th all-time meeting between the historic programs, with Michigan currently holding a 179-139-24 edge in the series. 

Michigan, currently ranked No. 14 in the nation by the USCHO poll, has claimed the “Iron D” Trophy against No. 7 Michigan State in each of the last six matchups at Little Caesars Arena. The two teams will square off three times this season (Jan. 19 at MSU; Jan. 20 at UM; Feb. 9 at UM) before their final regular season matchup in the “Duel in the D.” 

“There’s nothing quite like the environment at Little Caesars Arena when Michigan and Michigan State play for the ‘Iron D’ trophy,” said Michigan Head Coach Brandon Naurato. “It marks not only an important game for the players and the league but for every sports fan in the state. Our program takes great pride in our Michigan roots, and we are incredibly grateful to everyone who makes this game possible. We can’t wait to once again provide an unforgettable experience for everyone.”

“Having an opportunity to play in the greatest rivalry in college hockey in an NHL building is exciting for our program,” said Michigan State Head Coach Jared Nightingale. “Michigan State-Michigan brings out the best in both programs, and playing the game in front of 19,000 fans creates an atmosphere that is unmatched.  I have great memories of the games we played at Joe Louis Arena when I was a player, and we are appreciative that Little Caesars Arena and Ilitch Sports + Entertainment continues to give us this platform to showcase college hockey in the city of Detroit.”
