INTRODUCTION TO COLLEGE HOCKEY
Top College Rivalries
One of the things
we love about college hockey is that with fewer than 40 regular-season
games, every outing matters. But a few matchups ratchet up the intensity
College vs. Boston University: Nothing in Boston sports
divides the populace like a BC-BU game, at least dating back to
the Jim Rice-Fred Lynn debates of 1975.
College vs. Denver: These guys battle over a trophy called
the Gold Pan, although Denver – perhaps overwhelmed with hardware
after claiming the national title last year – claims it misplaced
the prize. That won’t go over well with CC, but that’s
par for the course with these two teams.
vs. Michigan State: More than 74,000 people watched these
teams play in the Cold War at Spartan Stadium in 2001. It sounds
like there’s roughly that many in the building when they meet
at Michigan’s Yost Ice Arena, MSU’s Munn Ice Arena,
or Joe Louis Arena.
vs. Wisconsin: Like any rivalry, this one has had its ebb
and flow, but both programs are up right now. That makes these Border
Battles particularly appealing.
