Edit: Since this became the game thread, Michigan just beat #4 BC 3-1 at home. Gigantic win this early for such a young team. Your outlook on the season should change accordingly
I thought I'd post some links for previews and such for the BC-Michigan game today as this is likely Michigan's biggest non-conference home game since...#7 BC lost to #5 Michigan 3-2 in 2005?
Also, even with all the TV coverage this year, somehow this game is relegated to Comcast channel 9e6 (or something) and that only. How the BTN, CBS Sports, NBCSN, and Fox Sports all managed to pass on this is beyond me.
Western College Hockey SBN College Hockey:
Escalating ticket prices and a resurgent basketball program have taken a big bite out of the vaunted atmosphere at Yost Arena in recent years, but with the excitement of a new season and the buzz of a nationally-known opponent in the building, it should be rocking tonight, and could put a very young Boston College team on their heels.
From Maize & Brew:
The game being at Yost means Michigan will come out hard, but if you can't beat Waterloo, BC is a different eagle all together. BC 5, Michigan 2.
From the Daily
Personally, I don't feel too great about this game. BC is likely loaded and we are reloading. Like M&B, I envision a 5-2 type game as well. If you're free tonight, find a ticket and go be loud at Yost. Goal horn be damned
