The Northern Michigan Wildcats men's ice hockey team is a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I college ice hockey program that represents Northern Michigan University. The Wildcats are a member of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA). NMU has won 1 national title and has 1 runner up. They play at the Berry Events Center in Marquette, Michigan.  Puckheads
The Puckheads are a group of fans of the Wildcats hockey team. The group is made up of students as well as residents from around the community. In the words of a Michigan Daily feature article, "The Puckheads have created an atmosphere that makes the Berry Events Center one of the most entertaining and frustrating road trips for other teams in the CCHA."
The Puckheads were founded in November 1996 at Lakeview Arena. The Puckheads travel and follow the team on many occasions, and have established rivalries with other teams' fan groups, notably the "Red Army" supporters of the Nebraska–Omaha Mavericks.
