Tentative schedule for 2007-08’s Mike Burrill has posted a tentative schedule for Lake Superior State University for the 2007-08 season.

The season starts early with the previously reported Superior Cup, which will feature the Lakers traveling to Minnesota-Duluth and Michigan Tech. The Lakers have also found themselves clustered with Northern Michigan, Michigan and Michigan State, as had been previously rumored, after competing in a cluster last season with NMU, Ohio State, and Miami of Ohio.

Last season LSSU went 4-5-0 (3-1 against NMU, 1-1 against UM, and 0-3 against MSU) against their new cluster mates including the CCHA playoff action in which LSSU battled back against MSU only to fall on a controversial overtime goal in the CCHA consolation game.

LSSU will play host to Coach Roque’s old team in Clarkson again this year; LSSU ended up facing the Golden Knights three times last season going 1-2-0 including a 3-2 loss in the championship game of the Badger Classic. The Golden Knights finished last season 25-9-5, falling to Massachusetts 0-1 in overtime of the NCAA East Regional Semifinals.

The Lakers will then take to the road traveling to South Bend to take on the CCHA champion Fighting Irish November 2-3, before traveling to Detroit to take on Wayne State on November 9-10 allowing Detroit Area alumni their only opportunity to see the Lakers in regular season play this season.

LSSU will play 5 of their next 6 games at home hosting the University of Michigan on November 16th and 17th. Then play a home and home against Nothern Michigan, before hosting Michigan State on November 30th and December 1.

The Lakers will next travel Nebraska Omaha for a series on December 7th and 8th, before potential Holiday tournament action. The Lakers will start the New Year in East Lansing playing Michigan State on January 4th and 5th, before hosting Bowling Green on January 11th and 12th, then heading down to Miami of Ohio on January 18th and 19th.

The Lakers will close out the season playing 7 of 12 games at home with home series against Ohio State, Ferris State, and Alaska, traveling to Kalamazoo and Ann Arbor, and finishing the season with a home and home series with Northern Michigan.

The key to success this season it will be for the Lakers to come out strong early in the season and pulling off some upsets. The schedule features 14 games against NCAA tournament teams in Clarkson, U of M, MSU, Miami of Ohio, and Notre Dame.

Bemidji State is noticeably absent from the schedule again this year after it was rumored that the two schools were trying to rekindle their rivalry after meeting in the 2005-06 season.

Mike reports that LSSU's exhibition opponent and holiday tournament have yet to be determined.
