Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (WJBK) -- Olympia Entertainment's 2012-13 'College Hockey in the D' schedule is set to begin four weeks from tomorrow as the 2012 Great Lakes Invitational gets underway on Saturday, Dec. 29 at Joe Louis Arena.

For the 48th year in a row, four high-profile NCAA hockey teams will descend upon the Motor City for a two-day, single-elimination-style tournament that has become a holiday tradition for sports fans in southeastern Michigan. Event mainstays Michigan, Michigan State and Michigan Tech will once again be competing for the MacInnes Cup this year, with special invitee Western Michigan set to participate for the first time since they claimed the tournament title in 1986 and the third time overall.

The Broncos will kick off the 48th Annual GLI on December 29 when they battle the Spartans at 3:30 p.m. Host school Michigan Tech will then take on Michigan at 7:00 p.m. in the second semifinal showdown of the day. On Dec. 30, Saturday's losing squads will square off in the Third-Place Game with the Championship Match set to be played Sunday evening.

Great Lakes Invitational tickets are currently available for purchase at the Joe Louis Arena Box Office (313-396-7575), all Ticketmaster outlets (800-745-3000) and online at OlympiaEntertainment.com.

Special value-laden Little Caesars Family Packs featuring four seats, four pieces of pizza and four soft drinks are available starting at just $44 per package. Student tickets are also available for as low as $10 apiece.
