Ferris State University and Fox Sports Detroit have announced the starting time for the Bulldogs' nationally-televised Anchor-Bone Classic showdown on Saturday, Nov. 9, against rival Grand Valley State has been changed.

The Bulldogs' home tilt against the Lakers at Top Taggart Field next Saturday will now begin with kickoff at 12:07 pm as part of Fox Sports Detroit's "Football Week In Michigan" promotion.

The start time was adjusted and moved up by three hours due to television coverage, which makes the noon start the only nationally-televised college football game in the state in that time slot.

Along with being aired on Fox Sports Detroit, the game will also air nationally on Fox College Sports across the country.

The game is expected to have potential conference and postseason implications as the nationally second-ranked Bulldogs are presently 8-0 overall heading into a trip to Michigan Tech this week while the 16th-ranked Lakers own a 7-1 mark entering the weekend. FSU is currently first in the Super Region Three rankings with GVSU seventh and the top seven teams at the end of the year will earn NCAA Division II Playoff berths.
