Bowling Green faces the surprise team in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association this weekend.
The Falcons travel to Alaska-Anchorage tonight and Saturday.
The Seawolves - next-to-last in the WCHA coaches poll - are tied with BG for the fourth place in the 10-team league with four weekends left in the regular season.
UAA is 14-11-3 overall and 10-9-3 in the league - their best start overall since the 1991-92 season. The Seawolves are 6-2-1 in their last nine league games.
The top eight teams in the league make the playoffs, with the top four hosting quarterfinal series.
"They're working really hard. They're committed to competing and working hard," BG coach Chris Bergeron said. "No one is out-working them right now."
The Seawolves are in their first season under head coach Matt Thomas, who had spent the last nine seasons as a head coach and general manager in the ECHL.
"They've established a work ethic and they have some talent there," Bergeron said.

Bowling Green's Ralf Freibergs didn't see any ice time during Latvia's game against Switzerland during the men's Olympic hockey tournament Wednesday.
The sophomore was one of eight defensemen who dressed for Latvia.
Olympic rules allow 20 non-skaters to dress for a game, in contrast to NHL and NCAA rules which permit 18 non-skaters per game.
Switzerland scored with 7.9 seconds left in the game to post a 1-0 victory.
Latvia finishes pool play with games against the Czech Republic Friday morning at 3 and Sweden Saturday at noon.
The Czech Republic game will be televised by MSNBC, while the USA Network will show the Sweden game.

Bowling Green's hopes of hosting a first-round series in the first round of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association playoffs could be decided this weekend.
The Falcons visit Alaska-Anchorage in a series matching the teams tied for the fourth and final home-ice position.
BG and UAA each have 23 points with six league games remaining.
The third- through ninth-place teams are separated by just six points, but eighth-place Northern Michigan and ninth-place Lake Superior each have played two fewer games.
"I believe our guys understand the implications of the series and the last six games in the league," BG coach Chris Bergeron said. "We've responded in situations like this in the past. There's no reason to believe we won't respond in this situation."
The top eight teams in the 10-team league qualify for the playoffs, with the top four hosting quarterfinal series.
BG has lost three of its last four games, including 5-2, 5-4 overtime losses at home to Michigan Tech Jan, 31-Feb. 1.

KENT — Despite leading by 13 points in each half, Bowling Green’s men’s basketball team dropped a 62-61 decision at Kent State Wednesday.
Devareaux Manley hit a fadeaway 3-pointer from the left side with 0.9 of a second left to give KSU the win.
‘‘The last shot, I’ll give Manley credit; it wasn’t an easy shot,’’ BG head coach Louis Orr said. ‘‘His momentum was taking him away (from the basket). I know there might have been some guys a tad late flying at him.’’
After the basket, the Falcons’ long in-bounds pass was knocked away at the buzzer. It’s BG’s second straight loss at the buzzer.
‘‘The last possession was just a lack of communication from the guys on the floor,’’ said BG senior Cameron Black. ‘‘It’s tough because we’re right there, we have a chance to win. Like a lot of games this year, we didn’t end up pulling it out.’’
Spencer Parker’s two free throws had given the Falcons a 61-59 lead with 9.9 seconds left.
A native of Kent, Black scored a career-high 18 points and added nine rebounds.

Bowling Green's baseball team is striving to build on last season.
The Falcons won the Mid-American Conference tournament to advance to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1999.
They return their entire lineup with one exception - pitcher Nick Bruns, who was 6-2 with six saves and a 2.53 earned-run average in 29 games.
"Last season gave us a lot of confidence and we're doing everything we can to get ready and be even better this season," said BG senior first baseman Jeremy Shay, a second-team All-MAC choice.
But BG is hoping to play well from start to finish after finishing 24-31 overall and 13-13 in the MAC for fourth place in the East Division.
The Falcons, though, went 4-1 in the MAC tournament to earn the championship.
BG beat Buffalo in its final regular-season game just to qualify for the MAC tourney.
"The expectations are even higher," said Shay, who led BG with a .330 average last season. He tied for the team lead in home runs with six and was second in runs batted in with 38.
BG is dominated by seniors and juniors, and only one sophomore starts.
"We know every team is going to be coming after us because we have a target on our back after last year," Shay said. "We have to go out and play our best every day and raise the level of our play."
