MARQUETTE – The Northern Michigan University Alumni Association has selected Saturday, Jan. 28, as “Wildcat Night Across the Country.” Alumni groups will get together at 19 locations nationwide – including Marquette – to watch the NMU hockey team face off against host Western Michigan University on the big screen.
The event coincides with the first “Hockey Day in Michigan.” FOX Sports Detroit will devote a full day of broadcasting to the sport. The coverage will include a college doubleheader, beginning with the NMU-WMU matchup in Kalamazoo, followed by the Michigan-Michigan State game at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit.
The Marquette viewing party will be held at Vango’s at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 28. For more information on the event, or the NMU Alumni Association, visit www.nu.edu/alumni.
