Game Day—Terriers vs. Badgers for all the marbles

The Terrier women’s team faces its final hurdle in the quest for a national championship, meeting heavily favored Wisconsin today in Erie, Pa. The game begins at 2 p.m. ET and will be Web cast on

Rebounding from several losses in February when injuries impacted the BU offense, Coach Brian Durocher's Terriers are back at the top of their game in the NCAA playoffs. While BU features two strong scoring lines, the #1 ranked Badgers, playing in their fifth title game in six games, have women’s hockey’s top offense, led by Kazmaier Award winner Meghan Duggan, who scored the game-winner in Wisconsin’s 3-2 semifinal win against BC. Wisconsin’s head coach, Mark Johnson, teamed with former Terriers Mike Eruzione, Jim Craig, Jack O’Callahan and Dave Silk to lead the U.S. Olympic team to its miraculous gold medal win in 1980.
