The Heights is in full football mode right now, but once that contest is over, it will be time to drop the puck on the second game of Boston College’s 2014-15 season.
As fans may recall, the first was not very entertaining, with the now #7 Eagles dropping a 5-2 decision. Not only that, but it was a lifeless performance on both ends of the ice. For a program that is used to winning, bouncing back is their only priority. Boston College typically does, but though they are unranked, the Tigers will not make it easy on the visitors.
Jerry York and RIT coach Wayne Wilson go back a long way, but tonight, it will be all business for the Eagles as they aim for their first win of the season.
