As the stats show, BC has been pretty dominant in just about every category this season, but since the holidays, Harvard has been just about BC's equal—in fact, they've been a slight bit more prolific than BC overall (4.64 goals to 4.5). While Alex Carpenter and Haley Skarupa have been held off of their scorching early season pace, Mary Parker and the rest of Harvard's talented offense has heated up.

The stage is set for what should probably be a tight and exciting game at Harvard. I wouldn't expect BC to smoke them again; the Crimson will be ready. Can the Eagles elevate their game?
