Looks like we had this one right. According to a report in today's Globe, Boston College will open the 2012 season hosting the Miami Hurricanes on Labor Day weekend.

"Boston College will open its 2012 football season at home against Miami on Labor Day weekend, according to sources at Boston College.

The likely dates are Sunday or Monday, although the entire weekend remains in play.

The Eagles will likely play at home against Maine the next weekend."

As I've written before, if there's one ACC team you want to open the season against, it's Georgia Tech (lucky Virginia Tech).

But if there's a second ACC team you want to host in the opener this coming season, it's Miami. Boston College is set to return 19 starters -- 9 offense, 9 defense, 1 specialist -- while Miami returns just 12. The Hurricanes are projected to lose seven starters on offense and five on defense from a team that finished 6-6 last season.

BC defeated Miami 24-17 in the season finale for both teams. Both finished a disappointing 3-5 in the ACC last season.
