Previewing Boston University's 2022 men's lacrosse schedule
The Boston University Terriers are the 40th team in our 2022 men’s college lacrosse schedule preview series and the third team from the Patriot League. BU went 6-5 overall in 2021 and 4-2 in Patriot League play. The Terriers fell to Colgate in the Patriot League quarterfinals.
Here's their entire 2022 spring schedule:
Bryant Bulldogs (2/19)
UMass Minutemen (2/26)
Bucknell Bison (3/12)
Harvard Crimson (3/22)
Navy Midshipmen (4/2)
Yale Bulldogs (4/5)
Princeton Tigers (4/9)
Loyola Greyhounds (4/16)
Lehigh Mountain Hawks (4/23)
Despite being Patriot League opponents, Bucknell, Lehigh, Loyola, and Navy did not play some of their league foes (BU was one of them) last season due to the Patriot League's temporary division formatting.
Pace Setters (D2) (15-2 W)
Utah Utes (11-10 L/2OT)
Brown Bears (12-5 L)
CIRCLE THESE DATES
3/5 at Colgate: BU's first three conference games could make or break their chances of making the conference tournament. Against their conference opening foe in Colgate, the Terriers won both regular season meetings by five and four goals respectively. But in the conference quarterfinals, it was the Raiders getting the last laugh with an 11-8 win.
3/12 vs. Bucknell: It's going to feel really weird seeing a conference matchup that hasn't happened in three years even with both teams playing last year. But that will be the case when BU plays four conference foes they didn't see last year. The Bison will be better playing a normal regular season.
3/22 at Harvard: In one of the best games of 2019, these teams played to a triple overtime thriller at Nickerson Field. That came after a wild overtime finish in Cambridge the year prior. Both games were won by Harvard. Both teams are different, especially BU who don't have Chris Gray anymore.
4/29 vs. Army West Point: Six of their nine all-time meetings have been decided by three goals or fewer. Prior to Army's pair of wins last year, the Terriers had won the last two matchups with the Black Knights. Army is a team that really wants to get back to the NCAA Tournament after coming up just short of it last year.
