The TD Garden will once again play host to the 60th annual Boston Beanpot tournament February 6th and 13th. Northeastern University will challenge the 2x defending champion BC Eagles in round 1 as the BU Terriers face-off against Harvard.
“The Beanpot is history,” said BC coach Jerry York. “It’s woven into all our players’ hearts and minds. They’ve grown up with it, they’ve watched it, they’ve gone to it since they were 5, 6 years old. Even our players who come from a distance, with the advent of ESPN and NESN, they’ve been watching highlights for a number of years.” BC defeated Northeastern in last year’s Beanpot finals 7-6.
