BC #1 college in hockey

Beanpot game watch changed to Tuesday, Feb. 3, 5 pm, Beer Co. The opening round was postponed a day because of the snowstorm.

USA Today has published a┬álist of the best US college men’s hockey programs, based on “athletic strength, leadership, career preparation and value.” At the top of the list is none other than, ahem, Boston College. I think BC fans would have only been surprised if some other school was there.

The top 10 college men’s hockey programs are

  • Boston College
  • Wisconsin
  • Minnesota
  • Notre Dame
  • Quinnipiac
  • Denver
  • Michigan
  • Colgate
  • Providence
  • Union

Notice the absence of that other hockey program on Commonwealth Avenue.


The BC Eagles defend their top ranking and go for their sixth consecutive Beanpot Championship in the opening round against Northeastern. Game watch is Monday, February 3 (change), 5 pm, The Beer Co., 602 Broadway, San Diego.
