The Eagles look to shake off post-Thanksgiving fatigue tonight in order to extend their winning streak with a victory over Harvard. BC has been looking better and better lately, and this chance to get an out of conference win is hugely important. Maybe the men can follow the women’s team’s lead and pick up an 8-1 win over the Crimson?

Ice Cream of the Game

Many of our other previews feature a beverage of the game, but this year we’ll be picking an ice cream dessert of the game for MIH games. Why, you ask? Because when Jerry York got the BC coaching job, he went out for ice cream sundaes to celebrate.

This week, I’ve gotta give a shoutout to Berryline, my favorite froyo shop, which has a location in Harvard Square.

Cat Predictions

Every game, we have the cats of the Ellen M. Gifford Cat Shelter (located right across from BC at 30 Undine Road) predict the outcome of the games. The Gifford Cat Shelter is the oldest cageless, no-kill shelter in the USA.

This week, Yorkie (my foster-but-maybe-i’m-keeping-him Gifford cat named after Coach York) is predicting a 1-0 BC victory this evening.
