By the SJSUHockey.net Staff
Your Spartans take on their closest geographic rivals: the Santa Clara University Broncos.

Th two campuses are only roughly 4 miles away from each other, so you know Sharks Ice will be rocking this Friday at 7:30 pm with fans from both schools.

If you can't make it to the game, Jonathan Wold will bring you the play-by-play of the game on the radio for 90.5 KSJS and streaming with live video on Black Dog Enterprises.

KNOW YOUR ENEMY
Santa Clara University Broncos
The Broncos compete in the PCHA in Division 3 of the ACHA. The last time these two teams squared off was in 2012, when SJSU skated to a 12-5 victory.

They look to be a stronger team this year as they've had a pretty good start to the season. They split a series with Cal-Berkeley, but had a 6-2 win the first night, while only losing by one the next night. They also fell just short to a tough SRJC squad last weekend 4-3.

The returned 12 players from last year's squad and look to head back to the PCHA playoffs.

STORYLINES
After scoring 12 goals two nights in a row against another D3 opponent, will it be another gaudy night for the Spartans' stat sheets?

All three goaltenders played well for SJSU last weekend. Who will Coach Hazelwood give the nod to for the game?

With Santa Clara being such a close rival, their fans are sure to be present tonight. Will YOU be ready to drown them out?

Go Spartans!
