Key Games

2/1 vs Providence

One of the more underrated week one games over the past few seasons, these two have faced each other each year since the Terriers’ first year in 2014. All but one of the five meetings between the Terriers and Friars has been decided by two goals. Boston U. holds a 4-2 series lead, winning the four meetings. Also, this will be the first time we get to see a Boston U. team without Chris Gray.

2/29 @ Colgate

Boston U. will open up Patriot League on the road against the Colgate Raiders. Last season, Colgate got the better of the Terriers, winning 9-7. In 2020, Boston U. will be looking for their first win over the Raiders since 2017. The all-time series is split 3-3 between the two squads. 

3/17 @ Harvard

The past two meetings between these two squads have been very fun with Harvard winning in overtime in both 2019 and 2018. Facing the Crimson in a midweek contest again this season, this one is bound to be another instant classic just like the past two meetings. 

4/18 @ Lehigh

Last season, Boston U. lost to Lehigh in the regular season and the Patriot League semifinals. Both games were decided by just two goals. The Terriers only win against the Mountain Hawks came in 2017 when they won 10-4. Additionally, that 2017 win was the largest margin of victory in the series as seven of these two programs eight meetings has been decided by either one or two goals.
