BU-BC to Play at Fenway Park

The newest edition of the Winter Classic will reportedly feature one of the oldest rivalries in college hockey. Reports are coming out that Boston University and Boston College will square off at Fenway Park during a doubleheader for the Winter Classic next winter.

According to the Daily Free Press – BU’s independent student run newspaper – a report in The Delaware County Daily Times indicates that before a potential match-up including the Bruins and Flyers, defending national champion Boston University will take on its heated rivals Boston College. We’ll have more information as it develops.

My Take: There had been rumors of a possible match-up at Fenway between BU and BC for quite some time. The jury is out on whether hockey will be a good sport to watch at Fenway, but it sure will make for some interesting pictures.

  1. I think this is awesome. This is a unique chapter in a great rivalry, I hope they make this a tradition, even if it isn’t annual. There have been rumors for some time about a Fenway tournament featuring two locals (BC, BU) and a couple other teams (Michigan and Michigan State were among those mentioned). I think the NHL missed a bit on the B’s opponent: Montreal? Pittsburgh (Crosby), Rangers? Philly with no marquee player and no real rivalry (the one 30 years ago sorta died), but this would be a home run.
