Boston College Accepts Bid To Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl; Will Play Nevada

The Herald's Steve Conroy confirms pretty much what we were all expecting -- the Eagles will face Nevada in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl in San Francisco on January 9.

"Boston College has officially received and accepted a bid to play in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl in San Francisco to play 11-1 Nevada, which knocked off national champion hopeful Boise State last week, on Sunday night, January 9. It will be the Eagles' second straight trip to San Francisco, where they lost to USC last year. The Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl is the lowest bowl on the ACC food chain, as they are the ninth out of nine bowls to pick this year."

Nevada's finished the regular season with a 12-1 record, the best in program history. The Wolf Pack upset BCS hopeful Boise State en route to a 7-1 record and a share of the WAC Championship. In non-conference play, the Wolf Pack defeated Cal and three Mountain West opponents, a conference they will be joining in 2012.

It will be pretty interesting to see the nation's third best total offense (averaging 535.5 yards per game) go up against the 14th best defense (and number 1 rush defense) in the country.

The Eagles will be playing in the San Francisco-based bowl for the third time in the bowl's nine year history, the most appearances of any program.

More on BC's bowl draw during the week. Go Eagles!
