from Neil Koepke of NCAA.com,
The national championship game features a classic David vs. Goliath matchup.
Ferris State, the decided underdog, will try to knock off the giant, Boston College, and claim its first NCAA championship on Saturday night at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.
A Bulldogs victory against the Eagles could rank as one of the greatest upsets in an NCAA title game.
Boston College is 32-10-1 overall, has won 18 consecutive games, outscored its opponents 78-21 during that stretch and has been ranked No. 1 since late February. The Eagles are seeking their third Frozen Four championship in five seasons.
FSU is 26-11-5, went 15 games (11-0-4) without a loss from early January to late February, is 4-3 in its last seven contests and has won three in a row.
Bob Daniels, Ferris State’s head coach, is fine with being the underdog and believes his team has a better chance of winning than most followers give the Central Collegiate Hockey Association’s regular-season champion.
“I’m sure we’ll field questions on how it feels to be underdogs and I can tell you that we’re fine with that. If we’re the decided underdog, so be it,’’ Daniels said.
continued and ESPN2 coverage begins tonight at 7:00pm ET tonight.
