The Boston University women’s ice hockey team visits Boston College on Friday (Oct. 21) to kick off the rivals’ first home-and-home weekend since Dec. 6 & 7, 2019.

Friday’s contest will be the Hockey East Game of the Week on NESN and both games will be streamed on ESPN+ (broadcast guide).


  • BU started a stretch of 12 straight Hockey East contests with a home-and-home split with New Hampshire last weekend with the road team winning each night.
  • Freshman Clara Yuhn (2g, 1a), senior Julia Nearis (1g, 2a) and graduate student Jesse DeVito (3a) share the team lead in points with three apiece.
  • In three of BU’s four games this season, an upperclassman has scored her first collegiate goal as senior Brooke Ersoy tallied her first goal as a Terrier in the opener while juniors defenders Andi Calderone and Tamara Giaquinto got their firsts in the UNH series.
  • Eleven Terriers have recorded at least one assist this season.
  • Graduate student Andrea Brändli became the first BU women’s goaltender to post back-to-back shutouts in 12 years and she currently leads the nation in both goals-against average (0.00) and save percentage (1.000).
  • Brändli’s current shutout skein stands at 189:30 as she hasn’t allowed a goal since Jan. 7 against Lindenwood while playing for Ohio State.


  • Boston College is 3-2-1 on the young season, including a 2-0-0 Hockey East mark thanks to a sweep of Merrimack two weeks ago.
  • The Eagles are coming off a hard-fought series with then-No. 11/13 Penn State, as the Nittany Lions won the opener, 3-2, before the teams skated to a 2-2 tie.
  • Senior Hannah Bilka leads the Eagles in points (9), goals (4), assists (5) and shots (29).
  • Sophomore Abby Newhook (3g, 3a) and freshman Kate Ham (3g, 2a) have added six and five points, respectively.
  • Graduate student Abigail Levy has started in four contests and has a 1.96 goals-against average and a .939 save percentage.


  • The Terriers and Eagles have met 64 times since BU became a varsity program in 2005, most recently on Feb. 5, when the Eagles earned a 3-0 home victory.
  • BU has won 24 of those 64 contests, including four of the last six tilts.
  • The Terriers and Eagles have played just twice each of the past two seasons and split each time. The road teams were victorious in 2020-21 while the home teams won last season.
  • BU has won seven of the past 10 regular-season meetings with BC.


  • The Terriers have another Hockey East home-and-home weekend upcoming as they will take on Merrimack starting on Friday (Oct. 28) in North Andover.
  • Friday’s contest will start at 6 p.m. while Saturday’s match-up at Walter Brown Arena will begin at 3 p.m.
