Boston College vs. UMass Kickoff Set For 3 P.M. On ESPN3

Jared Wickerham

An ESPN3 EXCLUSIVE!

Boston College will begin its 2014 football season against the Massachusetts Minutemen on Saturday, August 30, 2014 at 3 p.m., according to an announcement made on Friday. The game will be "televised" on ESPN3.

That gives the Eagles three nationally televised games during the first three weeks of the season. The UMass game (ESPN3) joins a pair of nationally televised contests vs. Pittsburgh (ESPN) and USC (ABC or ESPN/ESPN2) on the early season slate.

A bit disappointing that this game couldn't find its way onto a TV network (NESN?), though I suppose this is what happens when you face a soon-to-be conference-less college football program that has started life as a member of the Football Bowl Subdivision with a 2-22 record.

So, unless a local network picks this game up, we'll have to settle on actually attending the game at Gillette Stadium or firing up the ol' laptop, XBOX, Chrome Cast or what have you. Because you absolutely cannot bump regularly scheduled airings of Charlie Moore Outdoors or Red Sox First Pitch.

Boston College is 19-5 all-time vs. UMass; winners of seven straight dating back to the I-A / I-AA divisional split of 1978. The Eagles are coming off a 45-17 victory over the Minutemen during the 2011 season.
