NCAA Hockey Bracketology: Boston College Out, But By How Much?
Our first installment of NCAA hockey bracketology will cut to the chase: #19 Boston College would not make the tournament if the season ended today.
That much is well-known, especially after the Eagles lost to Maine on Sunday. Had that not happened, their position in the PairWise Rankings would be stronger than it is now, but we have to deal with life in the here and now. Boston College harmed themselves with the Maine loss, but helped themselves out with some recent big wins against Boston University and Merrimack.
Where does Boston College sit right now? Let’s look at the PairWise Rankings as of last night, following the Merrimack win:
