Frozen Four 2011: Michigan To Take On North Dakota

The Michigan hockey team's opponent in the 2011 Frozen Four is settled. The Wolverines punched their ticket to St. Paul for the Frozen Four on Saturday, and 24 hours later North Dakota did the same. This means that the Fighting Sioux will take on Michigan.

The way the 2011 NCAA hockey tournament bracket worked out was for the winners of the Midwest Regional and West Regional to play each other. North Dakota beat Denver, 6-1, on Sunday to take home the Midwest Regional crown. Michigan topped Colorado College on Saturday, 2-1, to capture the West Regional title.

Michigan's game against North Dakota will take place on April 7 in St. Paul. It is the second semifinal, meaning it will begin at 8:30 p.m. The first semifinal will be between Notre Dame and Minnesota-Duluth, and it will begin at 5 p.m. Both games will be televised on ESPN2.
