The bitterest rivalry in New England college sports is the ice hockey battle between the BU Terriers and the Boston College Eagles. Hockey fans at both schools are famous for taking the game as seriously as the players do, and around these parts (Boston, Brighton, Allston), the question of where to watch that game of games is more than academic. To help answer that question, BU Today sent two investigative reporters — one a BC alumnus, the other a BU alumna — into some of the many watering holes that dot the turf between the two Commonwealth Avenue titans. Their mission: locate the exact spot that divides the loyalties to each team. Click on the video above to learn what they discovered.
