Tonight, at 8pm, the two best teams in the country in the most recent poll, Boston College Eagles and Minnesota Golden Gophers, will do battle for the right to play for all the marbles on Saturday night. The winner faces either the Union Dutchmen or Ferris State Bulldogs.
Both of these teams are exceptional, or they wouldn’t be here. We know what Boston College brings to the table, including a Jerry York-best 17-game win streak, and we know that Minnesota is a strong offensive team that can ride big waves of momentum if they get hot.
How do these two teams compare head-to-head? See for yourself:
It is somewhat amazing that as good as Minnesota has been this year in a variety of categories, Boston College has been even better in most.
All of this adds up to an exceptional battle between two very good teams.
May the best team (BC) win.
