The contests mark the first meeting between the teams since
it was announced that the Marauders would join the league
and just the the second and third time the pair has ever met
on the diamond.
In the only other meeting between the teams, during the 1995 season, the Beavers came away with a 7-4 victory.
UM is 10-10 overall this season hailing from the Dakota Athletic Conference-10 (DAC-10) and playing a National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) schedule. Last season the Marauders captured the DAC-10 crown and Region III Runner-up trophy while posted a 39-14 record and gaining a No. 12 ranking in the season's final poll.
BSU is 0-12 this season and opens its conference slate today when it hosts Minnesota State University-Moorhead in a 3:00 p.m. double-header.
