UNION LAKE, Mich.--The American Collegiate Hockey Association will showcase a pair of Division I men's nationally top-4 ranked teams in the ACHA Game of the Week on ESPN3, and Adrian College will be one of the those squads.
The Bulldogs, who are 8-0 on the season, will play at third-ranked Davenport University (7-0) at 7 p.m. Friday in the nationally televised contest on the World Wide Leader in Sports' web-based platform. Adrian is ranked fourth in the latest ACHA #6 rankings.
The Bulldogs and Panthers, both from the Great Lakes Collegiate Hockey League (GLCHL), are also perennial national championship contenders. Adrian has won four GLCHL regular season championships to go with three playoff titles, while Davenport has managed one of each.
Adrian and Davenport have combined to win 15 games without a single blemish. In fact, they are two of three unbeaten, untied teams in the current ACHA poll
The ESPN3 game will be produced by GoLive Sports Cast, the company that put together the 2016 ACHA Men’s Division 1 National Tournament to strong reviews and record viewership numbers.
