Today's matchup pits two victories from the 2008 season against one another. These two wins occurred in consecutive weeks, with BC shutting out the Irish 17-0 on November 8 followed by a 27-17 victory the following week against a #19 ranked Florida State team down in Tallahassee. FSU had worn all-black uniforms for its homecoming matchup against BC, which is a guaranteed loss unless you are playing Duke. Also, this happened:
