Sacred Heart led by eight early on - at 13-5 with just under four minutes into the ballgame - before two Deontae Hawkins 3-pointers began an 8-0 run for Boston College, tying the game at 13-13. The Pioneers responded, going back up by eight - at 25-17 with 8:04 left in the half but another BC scoring run - this time an 11-5 push, trimmed the deficit to one. SHU would lead, 31-30, at the break.

Boston College journeys up to Burlington this weekend to break up a seven-game streak staged at Kelley Rink between the Eagles and Catamounts. This weekend's series marks BC's first trip to Gutterson Fieldhouse since Feb. 19-20, 2016 where the Eagles swept Vermont,  3-1 and 4-1, respectively. That sweep ignited a 6-1-2 run against UVM since that series as Boston College earned its revenge over Vermont.

The streak was ended. On the 31st try, Merrimack ended a significant streak last year on Feb. 10, 2017. The Eagles were 27-0-3 against the Warriors at Kelley Rink and and had that unbeaten stretch halted between the Beanpot last season when Merrimack skated away with a 6-3 triumph. Now, the Kelley Rink record against Merrimack stands at 27-1-3.

The Boston College football team earned its first victory over Florida State since 2009, recording the largest margin of victory over FSU in the program's history as the Eagles rolled to a 35-3 victory over the Seminoles. The Eagles (5-4, 3-3 ACC) collected their third straight ACC victory in the annual Red Bandanna Game, honoring Sept. 11 hero Welles Crowther.

Boston College will honor former standout Mike Ruth Friday during the Eagles' primetime ESPN game against Florida State this Friday. Ruth will be inducted into the 2017 College Football Hall of Fame Class in December, the National Football Foundation (NFF) & College Hall of Fame announced earlier this year.
