NOAH TRISTER AP Sports Writer Published:

Next week, Ferris State will play in the Frozen Four for the first time.

For now, the Bulldogs are still letting it all sink in.

Coach Bob Daniels says he wants his players to enjoy this experience and he's confident they can "flip the switch" when it comes time to face Union College in a national semifinal April 5 in Tampa, Fla. Ferris State, which is located in Big Rapids, Mich., reached the Frozen Four with a 2-1 victory over Cornell on Saturday night.

The other two semifinalists are traditional powerhouses Boston College and Minnesota.

Ferris State goalie Taylor Nelson says just talking about being in the Frozen Four is "surreal" and it's "a great feeling."
