TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - The NCAA Frozen Four is being hosted for the first time in a Southern city. And in keeping with the theme of a non-traditional site, two first-time participants hope to make their own memories.

Union College, a 2,133-student liberal arts school from Schenectady, N.Y., and Ferris State _ located in Big Rapids, Mich. _ will meet in Thursday's semifinals as both try to continue their unlikely paths toward a national hockey championship.

Meanwhile, the "other'' semifinal is a more familiar matchup to college hockey fans.

Boston College (31-10-1), the overall No. 1 seed and winners of 17 straight games, will take on Minnesota (28-13-1). The Eagles and Golden Gophers have combined for 43 Frozen Four appearances.
