    #2 Wisconsin heads to #7 BC (10/18) and #15 BU (10/19) HE/B1G challenge

    The Badgers got off to a good start with their first season opening sweep since 2004 against Northern Michigan University.

    Boston College lost to Michigan and beat Rensselaer.

    Boston University beat Massachusetts and Holy Cross.

    These games are part of the inaugural Big Ten/Hockey East challenge.

    Hope it goes as well for the road team visiting Boston (and Chestnut Hill, in this case ) as it did in June.

    A weekend that really can set the tone for the early part of the schedule. Would love a "sweep", but winning at least one is a must.

    Will there be any kind of shootout after a potential over time period due to the Big Ten/Hockey East Challenge?

    I've seen this question posed and I really don't know the answer. My guess is no?

    Great road trip and no TV.

    Any good streams for BC or BU games?

    In the case of a tie, we'll have joeyv and CHRIS!!!!!!!!!! in a cage match to discuss which team's recruits are better.

    I think we all know who will win this.

    Most likely not, the scoring is 2 pts for a win, 1 for a tie and a bonus point for a road win. The original article said if a big ten school uses a shoot out it won't factor in the challenge, the result would still be a tie. Since Hockey East doesn't use shootouts I wouldn't anticipate any this weekend.

    Looking forward to the game Saturday night.

    BU is relying heavily on freshman. They eeked out a couple of wins last weekend.. but I anticipate they will struggle against the upper tier tiems like Wisconsin. I think BU is talented but inexperienced and seeing how we do against Wisco will be interesting.

    Creating a "challenge" after the fact with games that had already been scheduled is lame. Being part of a "challenge" makes these games no more interesting.

    Agreed, but being part of a challenge means we will consistently have each other (BTHC vs. HE) on the non-con schedule - which is a positive.

    Perhaps... But with the number of OOC opportunities I don't think it would be an issue anyway. At least not for the BU's, BC's and Wisco's

    There has been nothing that indicates the schools that are unable to schedule games with the opposing conference on their own will be slotted into matchups in the future. No matter how well MC plays this year I doubt Minnesota comes to Lawler next year.

    I predict the Badgers will get two wins, and take over the #1 spot in the country after this weekend.

    BC/BU fans....tell me why I am wrong

    If Wisconsin manages to pull out a win at Conte on Friday, they are going to be tired facing a physical BU team on Saturday. BC rarely loses big matchups during the regular season recently though. On paper Wisconsin probably wins both. I would think their game plan should be to slow BC down, try not to take penalties (pretty much impossible for a mid-western team in a Hockey East arena), and look for transition offense. Then just play solid D vs BU and wait for them to turn the puck over on defense (which they will). If Wisconsin tries to play too physical with BC or tries to do too much vs BU they might have a bad weekend.

    As a BC fan, sorry, I can't. The Eagles are skating like 30 freshmen, most of them have the flu and the ones that don't have no sticks. Not to mention... someone stole all the goalie equipment. If you guys don't give BC a thorough beat down then you should be ashamed.

    Lose at BU?? hahahahahahaha... ain't happening.

    Congrats on your #1 ranking. See ya in April.

    Wow! You really brought some nastolgic uscho debates.(13 years?) Does CHRIS!!!! still post on here? I know he got banned, then changed his name to oldsalty and then stopped lingering in UW threads when Eaves was hired. He could have had a lot of UW material to work with the last couple years. I miss all the joeyv-Hammy(UMn guy) arguments as well.

    BC is a top tier team that plays a fast paced game. That is literally their game plan. They tire teams out. That was my point.
