Boston College and Boston University Set for Frozen Four Showdown

Boston -- This conflict, which began in 1918, is characterized by both rivalry and mutual hostility.

Boston University vs. Boston College is a legendary NCAA hockey matchup.

Forward Will Smith of BC stated, "I mean, obviously there's a lot of hatred there."

"There's a certain mutual respect off the rink. But we're adversaries as soon as we step onto the ice."

Smith knows, even though he was born in 2005. Everyone is aware.

A sort of hockey alchemy occurs when they put on those jerseys and gaze across the ice at their crosstown opponents, causing all the matches, brackets, and Beanpot tournaments to be downloaded into their hearts.
