Something's Missing

It's the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and BU plays Harvard tonight. Wait, What?  That's not happening this year. WHAT? BU always plays Harvard on this day, or at least has a game against someone. For the longest time, the Terriers and Crimson have had their pre-Thanksgiving contest tonight. Each year the home team would flip flop. BU one year, then Harvard the next, and it went on like this well into the 90's and up until this year.

In 2009, the Terriers took on the Crusaders of the College of the Holy Cross. Although BU did not play Harvard, they did still have a game. Last season, BU went over to Harvard and won a thriller in comeback fashion in overtime.

This season, BU will play the Crimson on the 15th of January at Agganis. Why is this game not tonight?

This weekend's game against Brown was originally scheduled for tonight  but was switched at the last minute. So now we can all kick back and watch Brown (who was supposed to play BU tonight) take on New Hampshire. Also, Vermont will visit UMass. That game is on CBS College Sports.

Other games around the country tonight include Ferris State at Michigan, Princeton at Quinnipiac, Colgate at Niagara, and Sacred Heart at Yale.

So, as I watch theses games tonight, I will be saying to myself "why am I not at Agganis tonight?"

In Other News
The College Hockey News ran a great article about the tragic story of Travis Roy, 11 Seconds, 15 Years.
