    2011As the No. 11 seed in the 11-team CCHA, Bowling Green was expected to go down in the CCHA Tournament first round without much of a fight against sixth-seeded Northern Michigan. Considering no bottom seed had even won one game in the first round since 2004, the odds were stacked against the Falcons. After losing the opener 6-3, it appeared even more-so that the season was about to end. Bowling Green rallied behind the goaltending of Andrew Hammond for a 2-0 victory to force a decisive game three. In that contest, Bryce Williamson's double overtime game-winner made Bowling Green the first bottom seed in CCHA history to win a best-of-three series.
