The Ultimate BC Football Game (Old Guy Edition) - 1970-99: Jack Bicknell Bracket Semi-Final #1 - #7 - Penn State - 1992 vs #10 - Georgia - 1986

Moving on to the final bracket of our Ultimate BC Football Game (Old Guy Edition), the Jack Bicknell Bracket where the #7 seed, the first ever win at Penn State in 1992 meets the 1986 Hall of Fame Bowl win over the Georgia Bulldogs. The winner of this one meets the winner of the #2 seed, Miracle in Miami game facing the #15 seed, 1987 home win vs Johnny Majors' Tennessee squad.

The Chlebek/Henning Bracket final is now set with #6 Houston - 1985 defeating #11 Stanford - 1980 to advance against #3 Alabama - 1984, so another battle of games within the same season.

Voting on the Penn State - Georgia game will run through 11:55 PM on July 24.

Highlights of that Georgia game and if I can get to it, the Penn State 92 game, can be found on the Old Guy Edition post.

So previously we took a look at how BC fared vs the top 5 from 1970-99 (1-11 with the only win coming in the '93 Notre Dame game). So how did the Eagles do then against the top 10 during that same period. Somewhat better, but still not what might think considering the Flutie factor in the mid 80s. BC was just 4-17 vs teams ranked 6-10 during that 30 year period.
