It is always an event when No. 8 Boston College (4-2-1) squares off with arch rival No. 17 Boston University (4-4-0).
Friday’s game at Agganis Arena is the first of three meetings between the teams (one being the opening round of the Beanpot) and the only one at BU.
Senior defenseman Garrett Noonan said it will be memorable particularly for those in their final season.
“I’m really excited, I think it will be my last game at Agganis against BC,’’ said Noonan. “I’ve been waiting for this for awhile and it’s always one of the most fun games of the year. You come to BU for games like this and knowing it’s your last year and the last time you’re going to play them at Agganis, you definitely go out and have a good game.’’ Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
