Weekend Matchup: Hockey vs Bowling Green

by Published: Feb 17, 2012

This week­end, the #1 Bulldog hockey, both in the CCHA and nation­ally, face­off against Bowling Green State Falcons. The two teams already played one week­end series in Bowling Green, with Ferris secur­ing the week­end sweep with a 4–0 and a 5–3 win. Bowling Green is cur­rently sit­ting in last place in the CCHA con­fer­ence stand­ings with a 9−18−5 over­all record while Ferris State enters the week­end with a 20−8−4 record. Ferris State last week­end became the first team in the NCAA Division 1 hockey to reach 20 wins in the season.

If Ferris secures the week­end sweep against the Falcons as well as Western Michigan los­ing a game in their away series against Lake Superior State, then Ferris will clinch a CCHA reg­u­lar sea­son cham­pi­onship. After the reg­u­lar sea­son, the Bulldogs will receive a first round bye for the CCHA play­offs if they main­tain a top 4 spot in the CCHA standings.
