I don't think it's MSG picking teams as much as it is Cornell taking the initiative to schedule a game there. In 2007 Cornell and BU signed an agreement to bring back their rivalry and play a three game series. The first game was at MSG and then it was supposed to be home and home for the last 2 games. The game at MSG in 2007 ended up being really successful and selling out so they moved the other 2 games to MSG. Since the games do really well (Cornell is a huge hockey school with a ton of alumni in NYC and each game has been on a Saturday night during Thanksgiving weekend) they scheduled another game for the same date this year
