2012 NCAA Hockey schedule: Boston University takes on top-5 North Dakota, No. 1 BC in action

Douglas Jones-US PRESSWIRE

Five top-20 New England teams play Friday night, with No. 1 Boston College taking on Maine and No. 12 Boston University heading to North Dakota for a ranked matchup.

Five ranked New England teams take the ice in a Friday night filled with college hockey, including a big road test for No. 12 Boston University as they take on a top-5 North Dakota team.

The Terriers' only loss on the year was also their only game against a ranked opponent, losing 4-1 in a Hockey East matchup to New Hampshire. North Dakota is 2-1-1 on the year, with all games coming against either Alaska or Alaska-Anchorage, and as a top team in the country, could have been expected to go 4-0 but struggled. BU will play a pair of games in Grand Forks, both of which will be televised on Fox College Sports.

Elsewhere, the top-ranked BC Eagles have recovered from their season-opening loss to Northeastern and head to Maine to face the Black Bears, No. 9 New Hampshire looks to stay unbeaten as they take on UMass, Harvard opens ECAC play against Brown, and No. 15 Northeastern faces an intra-state opponent in Merrimack.

Here's the full schedule of ranked New England teams:

No. 1 Boston College vs. Maine, 7 p.m, WABI (Bangor, ME)

No. 9 New Hampshire vs. UMass, 7 p.m.

No. 13 Harvard vs. Brown, 7 p.m.

Merrimack vs. No. 15 Northeastern, 7 p.m., 1590 on radio
