    On the schedule if both teams win in the first round it has to be the Beanpot Final of BC vs. BU.

    Might as well just close the thread to any new posts now.

    The reason for the talent in the west? Because MN didn't rely on Canada.

    Sure as hell wasn't BC-Minnesota last year. Hopefully it is better this season.

    The beanpot counts as non-conference for scheduling. Still, I agree BU/BC seems counter to the original question posed by the thread.

    St, Clooud vs. #26 Union

    Oh wait, they're not playing this year? Darn.

    RPI vs. BU. Always a classic, no matter how awful the teams are doing that year.

    They might play a non-conference game in the NCAA Tournament.

    Personally, my best OOC game this year is definitely RIT vs Penn State from Blue Cross Arena.

    Given it's our homecoming weekend, we will likely sell out all 10,500 seats for the 3rd year running.

    Especially considering the ivy league university hasn't fielded a D-I hockey team in many years.

    There's something wrong if they don't sell out that game.

    Yale @ BC should be fun. Last years game at Ingalls was crazy good, even if Yale chocked.

    Re: Best Non-Conference Game

    I think BU/UND or BC/UM would have to be up there compared with BC/BU in the Beanpot primarily beacuse you don't see those squads face each other as often. Obviously the Beanpot is a big deal but the other two mathups are so infrequent that it adds a bit of allure.

    BU vs. Cornell has always been good. BC vs. North Dakota lately has been great, too.
