The first place Lone Star Brahmas entertain the Shreveport Mudbugs at NYTEX Sports Center, and Odessa Jackalopes visit the Corpus Christi IceRays at American Bank Center. The Topeka RoadRunners venture out of the South to face their rival Springfield Jr. Blues that are currently in a playoff fight with the defending national champion Fairbanks IceDogs in the Midwest Division.
