Random fact 1: The Virginia Tech win was the program's greatest fourth-quarter deficit overcome in terms of trailing late and scoring the winning points with the fewest amount of time remaining. The Eagles trailed 10-0 with 2:11 to go before taking a 14-10 lead with only 11 seconds remaining. The other fourth-quarter comebacks on that list:

-- 1988 victory over Pittsburgh, 34-31 - down 31-19 at 8:42, before taking a 34-31 lead at 1:28
-- 1995 victory over Rutgers, 41-38 - down 38-28 at 8:59, before taking a 41-38 lead at 1:16
-- 1980 victory over Holy Cross, 27-26 - down 26-14 at 12:00, before taking a 27-26 lead at 4:00
-- 1984 victory over Alabama, 38-31 - down 31-21 at end of 3rd, before taking a 38-31 lead at 3:26
-- 2002 victory over Stanford, 34-27 - down 27-17 at end of 3rd, before taking a 34-27 lead at 0:36
-- 1961 victory over Iowa State, 14-10 - down 10-0 at end of 3rd, before taking a 14-10 lead at 4:38

Random fact 2: Boston College has hosted ESPN's College Game Day twice on campus in the last seven seasons (2005 and 2009, both against Florida State). The only ACC programs to have hosted the WWL's pre-game show on campus more are Virginia Tech (five times), Miami (six) and Florida State (seven). Duke Maryland, Wake Forest and Virginia are the only ACC programs never to have hosted.
