For the 21st time in a row, BC knocked off Hockey East foe Vermont, running its all-time record against its New England neighbors to a remarkable 45-3-3.
A.J. Dillon rushed for 149 yards and three touchdowns in less than a quarter of work, and BC cruised to its second 30-plus point blowout of the season against longtime New England rival Holy Cross.
From 1896 to 1986, the Eagles squared off against Holy Cross 82 times—now that the Crusaders’ football scholarships are restored, the rivalry, lopsided or not, is back.
Eleven different Eagles found the back of the net during their home opener against Holy Cross, en route to an 18-goal victory, the program’s most decisive victory in three years.
