In a battle for greater Boston supremacy, teams from Harvard and Boston College face off in the first round of Schooled: NESN's College Face Off.

The opening match of this eight-team tournament has two of New England's finest institutions going head-to-head in a good, old-fashioned throwdown. Factor in that both schools call Boston home, and some serious bragging rights are at stake here.

The Crimson may have the Charles River, but the Eagles have Chestnut Hill. Whoever can take the middle ground between land and river will have the upper hand.

Be sure to tune in to NESN on Oct. 30 at 7 p.m. for all the action, as one of New England's top dogs will be bowing out in the first round.
