The Battle of Comm Ave - SPECIAL EDITION 2011
Talk about roots. And passion. And bad blood. The rivalry between Boston University and Boston College has never been hotter.
That's saying something. These legendary programs have gone at each other for nearly a century. Each team measures its own success — at least in part — by its performance against the other. They've recruited the same kids, battled for the same titles, and now, chase the same championship.
Narrated by the voice of the NHL, Doc Emrick, this film is a gripping journey through the rivalry's storied history, defining moments and recent glories in this exclusive Director's Cut version. This 2011 version features new content and bonus features not seen before!

"A fine job ... By the end of the film, you should be convinced (the rivalry) deserves recognition alongside Michigan vs. Ohio State, North Carolina vs. Duke, Yankees vs. Red Sox, and Giants vs. Dodgers."
- Stu Hackel, The New York Times
