BU vs. BC on January 8th, 2010.
The Huskies and Wildcats, two traditional women's college hockey powers, will start the festivities at 4 p.m, with BC and BU -- the last two NCAA men's champions -- meeting for the 248th time in the programs' histories at 7:30 p.m.They've been talking about this for years, so it's nice to see it finally happen. I imagine the success of the NHL "Winter Classic" outdoor games was a big factor. If I'm not mistaken, it was the Cold War that started this trend.
Tickets will go on sale to the general public at noon on Thursday, Sept. 17. Prices start at $5 and tickets will be valid for both games.
