The decisions by Michigan and Marquette to add men’s lacrosse programs attracted a huge amount of attention when they were made.

But beyond the BCS and more recently, there have been colleges who have also decided to launch programs.

Just last week, Furman University in South Carolina announced it would be adding both men’s and women’s lax programs.

Earlier today, reported that Boston University will be next.

The Terriers, who already have a women’s lacrosse team, are expected to field a men’s team at the D-I level starting with the 2014 season.
