MONTREAL — According to a pair of sources with knowledge of the Winter Classic event, storied rivals Boston University and Boston College [1] have agreed to play each other in an outdoor college hockey game at Fenway Park [2] on Jan. 8. The sources told WEEI.com that the game will take place exactly a week after the Bruins and Philadelphia take part in the Winter Classic on New Year’s Day at Fenway.

Talks are still underway for a second college hockey game paired with BC/BU at Fenway, and it could be either two different Hockey East men’s teams or a pair of Hockey East women’s teams in second part of the college doubleheader. The Boston College/Boston University college hockey undercard is expected to be finalized and part of the announcement at Fenway Park when the NHL [3] makes the 2010 Winter Classic official next month.
