The Ferris State ath­letic depart­ment has announced that Ferris Hockey will be tele­vised this week­end, Jan 24–25 when they take on Michigan Tech.

This marks the sec­ond straight week­end that the ath­letic depart­ment and hous­ing and res­i­dence life ser­vices with the sup­port of Ferris media pro­duc­tion have picked up the cost to tele­vise hockey games in Big Rapids for res­i­dents and stu­dents, enabling them to watch it for free.

The games will be broad­casted in the res­i­dence halls on chan­nel 22, the Ferris Channel, and chan­nel 97 locally.

Last week­end when the Bulldogs trav­eled to Mankato to take on the Mavericks, both games were tele­vised, and the town took advantage.

Cranker’s Brewery, the Gate, and Shooters all aired the game on Friday, Jan. 17 for customers.

Cranker’s was packed full dur­ing the Friday game, and on a night that was sup­posed to be open mic, more bar-goers seemed tuned in to the game.

Raucous cheers erupted from the bar when junior for­ward T.J. Schlueter scored the Bulldogs first goal of the evening to cut the Maverick’s lead to 2–1.

Both games have a 7:07 puck drop slated in the schedule.
