The Eagles play their first road games this weekend...

FloHockey: Women's Ice Hockey-Quinnipiac at Boston College Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

The Eagles head out on the road for this first time this season with games against UConn and UVM. Both teams have had some success so far this season, but with the skill and depth on this BC team, it would be a surprise to see BC lose either game. Expect to see more goals from the newest BC star, Daryl Watts, in both games.

How Much Does Laura Hate the Opposing Mascot?

Did you know that I have very strong opinions on mascots? Now you do!

Jonathan the Husky 2/5

Mascot Jonathan is pretty mediocre, but extra bonus points for real husky who is a Good Boy.

Rowdy the Catamount

2/5

Points for being a cat (and for not being creepy like the QU mascot). Rowdy could definitely use some upgrading, but he’s a decent mascot.

Predictions

Grant: 4-1 BC in both games

Laura: 5-1 BC in both games
