With a two-game weekend sweep over Western Michigan, the Michigan hockey team advanced to the CCHA semifinals at Joe Louis Arena for the 24th consecutive year.
Two days later, it has an opponent and a faceoff time.
The Wolverines will take on Miami (4:35 p.m., Fox Sports Detroit) Saturday at Joe Louis Arena, in the second of two tournament semifinals. The winner will face the winner of Notre Dame and Ohio State at 2:05 p.m. Sunday in the championship game.
The Redhawks are the tournament's top seed, after going 17-7-4-4 in league play. They advanced to the semifinals by beating Michigan State, 4-1, in Game 3 of a quarterfinal series Sunday.
Michigan and Miami met on the opening weekend of CCHA play Oct. 26-27, with Michigan taking the first game 4-2 and Miami taking the second game 4-3 in Ann Arbor.
Michigan likely needs to win the tournament to keep its 22-year NCAA tournament streak alive.
