SIOUX FALLS, S.D. -- With five more shutouts last week, Summit League teams have now combined for 22 just under a month into the season. That already puts the teams within nine of the total amount of 31 from the 2017 season. All nine teams will get the chance to add to that figure, but a majority of the matches slated for this week will not be played in friendly confines.
