Mark Bomersback and the Bulldogs will appear on FSN Detroit's "CCHA Game of the Week" this Saturday evening at Michigan.

The Ferris State University men's ice hockey team will make its 2006-07 season FSN Detroit debut this Saturday (Jan. 27) as the Bulldogs skate against the nationally-ranked University of Michigan Wolverines in a 7:35 p.m. (EST) Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) contest at UM's Yost Ice Arena in Ann Arbor, Mich.

The FSN Detroit CCHA game will be called by Matt Shepard with analyst Fred Pletsch joining him in the television booth. Shireen Saski will be the rinkside reporter.

Ferris State, which is presently 7-16-3 overall and 4-12-2 in the CCHA, will appear two more times on FSN Detroit during the 2006-07 regular season with both coming against Michigan State. FSN Detroit will televise the Friday, Feb. 9, game in East Lansing, Mich. and then come to the Ferris State campus on Tuesday, Feb. 13 for the home-and-home CCHA series finale between the two in-state schools. Both series contests are scheduled for 7:35 p.m. (EST) start times.

FSN Detroit will be making an appearance at FSU's Ewigleben Ice Arena for the second consecutive season as the regional network televised the opening game of last season's CCHA Tournament First-Round series against Ohio State on March 3. Prior to last season, the Bulldogs hadn't played at home in front of a regionally televised audience since Oct. 17, 1986.
