NCAA Hockey Tournament 2011 Bracket: Michigan To Play Nebraska-Omaha

The 2011 NCAA hockey tournament bracket was just announced live on ESPN2. The Michigan Wolverines will be headed to St. Louis to play the Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks. Michigan is a No. 2 seed in the West Regional. Boston College is the No. 1 seed and will play Colorado College, the No. 4 seed. Michigan's opponent, Nebraska-Omaha, is the No. 3 seed.

If Michigan is able to beat Nebraska-Omaha, it will play the winner of the Boston College/Colorado College game. Should the Wolverines advance out of the West Regional and return to the Frozen Four for the first time since 2008, Michigan would play the winner of the Midwest Regional. That could set up a potential game with Western Michigan, which is the CCHA representative in the Midwest Regional. In total, there are four CCHA teams in the 2011 NCAA hockey tournament (Miami, Michigan, Notre Dame and Western Michigan).

Below is a look at the full NCAA hockey tournament bracket and the road to the 2011 Frozen Four, which will be played on April 7 and 9 in Saint Paul, MN.
