Hockey at Fenway

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.

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.
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.
