2020 College Hockey Bracketology

Driving forward to Detroit.

If the college basketball tournament is coming, college hockey’s is not far behind, making it time for 2020 college hockey bracketology.

When all is said and done, 16 teams will qualify for the 2020 NCAA Hockey Tournament on the men’s side. The good news is that with the metrics we have available, we have a strong idea of who those teams would be at any given time. In our NCAA basketball bracketology, we are guessing at the at-large bids. However, college hockey’s system takes out the guesswork.

As always, our source for these rankings is the USCHO PairWise (PWR) Ranking. How this looks on any given day determines the tournament field, though it will only matter in March.

2020 College Hockey Tournament Format

As it has been for a number of years, there will be six automatic bids for the six conference tournament champions. The remaining ten bids are at-larges.

Tournament regionals will be held in the following cities: Allentown, PA (Midwest), Worcester, MA (Northeast), Loveland, CO (West), and Albany, NY (East). The 2020 Frozen Four will be held in Detroit, MI.
