The Eagles finally return to action tonight as they take on the Quinnipiac Bobcats at Conte Forum. BC heads into the game undefeated, but having only played 2 regular season games. Quinnipiac is 4-2, with both losses occurring on the road. Quinnipiac has faced slightly easier teams so far this season, while BC earned two solid wins against a talented Minnesota-Duluth team. With freshman Daryl Watts leading the charge on offense and Katie Burt holding things down in goal, this should be a winnable game for BC. QU is a good team, but the Eagles are a great team.

How Much Does Laura Hate the Opposing Mascot?
Did you know that I have very strong opinions on mascots? Now you do!
Boomer the Bobcat: 4 / 5
I like that Boomer A) is a feline and B) is recognizable as a wild cat. But his saucy expression creeps me out and moves him very far up on the “I do not like this” scale. I do not want a mascot to have the expression that I imagine most internet trolls have when trolling.
