The fourth-seeded Bulldogs, who topped fifth-seeded Northwood by a 3-0 score in Saturday's regular-season finale, would advance to the semifinals by defeating the Timberwolves in Wednesday's quarterfinal match. 

The other quarterfinal-round matches on Wednesday include top-seeded Grand Valley State hosting eighth-seeded Saginaw Valley State, third-seeded Northern Michigan hosting number six seed Findlay along with second-seeded Ashland hosting seventh-seeded Hillsdale.

The highest remaining seed after the quarterfinals will host the tournament semifinals and final on Saturday (Nov. 23) and Sunday (Nov. 24).

Ferris State wrapped up the regular-season with a 22-7 overall record and posted a 15-3 mark in GLIAC regular-season action en route to placing tied for second in the conference this campaign. Ferris State, Ashland and Northern Michigan all had identical records behind league regular-season champion Grand Valley State (17-1), but the Bulldogs finished third in the tiebreaker scenario.

Meanwhile, Northwood is 20-9 on the year and finished 13-5 in league action during the regular-season after Saturday's loss to the Bulldogs. 

The nationally 24th-ranked Bulldogs, who were second in this past week's NCAA Division II Midwest Regional Rankings, cruised past the region's third-ranked Timberwolves with a 25-23, 26-24, 25-16 triumph on Saturday afternoon in Midland.

Ferris State closed the regular-season on a four-match winning streak, which included a weekend road sweep over two regionally-ranked top 10 teams in both Northwood and Hillsdale.

After conference tournament action is complete, the top eight teams in the region will advance to the NCAA Division II Tournament with the top school likely to host regional action Dec. 5-7. 

This year marks the third consecutive season in which the Bulldogs have clinched a quarterfinal-round home match for the GLIAC Tournament. FSU has currently won 10 of its last 13 matches overall this season and owns a 12-1 record at home this campaign entering Wednesday's quarterfinal showdown.
