In yet another late collapse by an obviously superior ACC team, Boston College gave up three goals in the last 10 minutes to yak up the Frozen Four and the 2007 NCAA Men’s Ice Hockey National Championship to Michigan State. In front of a record crowd of 19,432, the Eagles (29-12-1, 22-0 ACC) gave up the winning goal with just 18.9 seconds left. The Spartans then added an empty net goal near the buzzer.

The loss snapped a 13-game winning streak for Eagles and sent them to their second loss in as many years in the national championship game after losing to Wisconsin in last year’s final, 2-1. “Can you believe this?” said ACC Commissoner John Swofford. “Nothing says ‘ice hockey’ like the ‘ACC,’ and now we haven’t won the Frozen Four since BC did way the hell back in 2001.”
