    One other difference, though, is that it affords them more exhibition play, or "scrimmages" as they call it. The NCAA counts it against the 34 past the normal exemptions, but the Ivies do not count any of them against their 29. That's why you'll commonly see them have 30 (sometimes 31) official games, at least according to the NCAA count.

    Link to this year's spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...k08c3pHev5-Fw/

    Obviously with hardly any information in the date area, no one to report as "effectively complete"*.

    * Effectively complete meaning the school has released the schedule, or enough alternate information has been reported to determine the schedule is complete, minus exhibition games. Discretion will be used to determine whether WCHA teams will be using their entire allotment.

    There's another one planned. Won't be at home. Won't be playing 38.

    Colgate played at BU during '14-'15.

    Thanks, I should have remembered that. There are many home-and-home agreements that for various reasons are not in consecutive seasons and it makes it harder to keep track of them. There are also four year arraignments between two eastern and one western team where the western team plays single games at 2 eastern teams, one eastern team plays 2 at the western team, the western team plays single games at the 2 eastern teams again and the other eastern team plays two at the western team. It came to me yesterday that Denver will likely be playing singles games next season at both BU and BC to finish such an arrangement. BC played 2 at DU in 14-15, DU played at BC and BU in 15-16 and BU played 2 at DU this season, leaving DU most likely owing both BU and BC single home games next season.

    If BU hosts both Denver (1) and Penn State (2) that would leave them with only one more NC game to fill out their schedule.
