After its best regular season since it advanced to the Frozen Four in 2003, Cornell men’s hockey will head to Worcester, Massachusetts, and face longtime rival Boston University in the NCAA tournament.

Despite an upset loss to Princeton, the eventual ECAC champions, in the conference semifinals, the Red had already locked up a No. 1 seed.

Cornell, the No. 3 overall seed, faces the Terriers in the northeast regional. If it wins its game March 24, it will take on the winner between Michigan and Northeastern in the national quarterfinals.

The Red takes on BU at 1 p.m. March 24. The game will be broadcast on ESPN News, and the winner will take on Michigan or Northeastern at 4 p.m. March 25.
