Trends: Last year's tie stopped up BC's six-game winning streak against Brown. You have to go back to the late 1970s to see a Brown victory over BC. The Bears finished 2014 on a high note, defeating Rensselaer at home, 4-2, to close out the first half on Dec. 6. Before that victory, Brown had lost 8-of-9 contests.
