Boston College: The Eagles have another opportunity to make a statement

November 13, 2020

Two weeks ago, Boston College was a half away from shocking the college football world by almost beating number one ranked Clemson. The Eagles fell short, losing 34-28. Fast forward to this weekend and Jeff Hafley and his team once again have another opportunity to pull off an upset, this time against long time rival Notre Dame. The Irish knocked off Clemson at home last week and come to the…

In the immortal words of Cosmo Kramer, “giddy up.” Not only do the Eagles host Notre Dame for the latest installment of the ‘Holy War’ on Saturday, but it’s also the annual red bandanna game honoring former Eagle and true hero Welles Crowther. Let’s jump right in to all of the storylines surrounding this huge matchup that will be nationally televised on ABC: PLAYING…

Boston College: Eagles escape NY with a 16-13 win over Syracuse

November 8, 2020

SYRACUSE — I’m 99% sure that I’ve used this to start another game story from this season, but the old saying “they don’t ask how, just how many” applies here as well. BC visited the Carrier Dome in Syracuse on Saturday afternoon and were favored to win by at least 14 points. With the way the offense had been clicking lately, it was just assumed by anyone who covers or…

Boston College: Putting a bow on Clemson

November 2, 2020

Usually, we would wait and include some stuff from coach Hafley’s Sunday media availability later in the week. However, with the way the game went down and the impact of taking Clemson all the way to the final buzzer, we thought it would be worthwhile to give ourselves and the BC fan base some closure. Not to mention the fact that BC is not practicing on Election Day Tuesday, which…


Boston College: Eagles make statement despite losing to No. 1 Clemson 34-28

November 1, 2020

Josh Morgan-USA TODAY Sports The stars were aligned for Boston College on Saturday, but Clemson had other ideas. The Eagles entered Death Valley on Halloween as 24 1/2 point underdogs despite Clemson missing a few key defensive players and some other guy named Trevor Lawrence due to a positive Covid-19 test that was made public on Thursday night. If Boston College was ever going to have a chance to upset…

The Tigers have won nine straight against the Eagles which is the longest in the series. Interestingly enough, the two programs actually play for a trophy. For the last 13 years, the two teams have played for the O’Rourke-McFadden…


Boston College: It’s Clemson week. Are the Eagles ready to shock the world?

October 30, 2020

Well, well, well, things have become awfully interesting the past 24 hours haven’t they? News broke Thursday night that Clemson quarterback and potentially the No. 1 pick in this year’s NFL Draft Trevor Lawrence had tested positive for Covid. This of course eliminates a huge piece of the puzzle for the Tigers as they get set to host the Eagles on Saturday. The line on this game opened at 32…
