TAMPA - Ferris State did not capture the NCAA championship Saturday night, but it gained plenty of respect from Boston College, which won its fifth national title with a 4-1 victory in front of 18,818 fans at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

Ferris State wasn’t given much of a chance entering the game against the No. 1 team in the country, a squad riding an 18-game winning streak.
