Countdown: Two Days to Game Time at Agganis!

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.   

Wednesday’s face-off at Conte Forum ended in a 4-1 win for the Terriers, extending the team’s unbeaten streak to eight games. On Friday, January 26, the teams clash again at Agganis Arena. Don’t miss the pregame Terrier Tailgate starting at 5 p.m. at Nickerson Field, with free food and chances to win tickets to this year’s Beanpot!

Friday’s game, which starts at 7:30 p.m., will be televised on NESN.
