Talk about two teams with something to play for. When Northeastern University and Boston College square off for the Beanpot championship next Monday night, both will have plenty of incentive.

The Northeastern Huskies (8-13-3), after knocking off Boston University for the first time in 16 Beanpot contests, are looking to end 25 years of frustration and bring their first Beanpot crown to Huntington Avenue since 1988. There’s also a measure of revenge, as BC broke the hearts of the Northeastern faithful when it edged the Huskies in overtime 7-6 in the 2011 final.
