Boston College Football Schedule: Colorado State Completes 2014 Schedule

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Rams will head to Chestnut Hill to take on the Eagles on September 27, 2014 at Alumni Stadium.

On Wednesday, UTEP dropped the final game in its four-year contract with Colorado State. The Miners were scheduled to play the Rams on September 20, 2014 in El Paso, but opted out of the final game in the series so that they could travel to Kansas State to play the Wildcats a week later.

Prescient.

Boston College athletic director Brad Bates pounced on the schedule opening, inking a one-game deal with Colorado State for Saturday, September 27 at Alumni Stadium. And there was much rejoicing in Fort Collins:

"This will be a great opportunity for our team to play a really quality opponent from the ACC and showcase our great University on a national level," said Head Coach Jim McElwain. "It’s great for the Colorado State fan base and is really going to help our program as we continue to build toward a sustained level of excellence that we expect at Colorado State University."

The addition of Colorado State completes the Eagles' 2014 schedule. More importantly, the Rams give Boston College a seventh home game, marking the first time in four years BC will have seven games on the home sched.

In addition to Colorado State (Sept. 27), Boston College will host USC (Sept. 13) and Maine (TBD) as well as travel to UMass (Aug. 30) for the season opener. In conference play, BC will host Clemson along with ACC newcomers Louisville, Pittsburgh and Syracuse. The Eagles will hit the road to face Florida State, N.C. State, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest.

Colorado State went 7-6 (5-3 Mountain West) this year, finishing third in the Mountain West Mountain Division behind Utah State and Boise State. This is a rematch of the 2003 Diamond Walnut Bowl, a 35-21 Boston College victory on New Year's Eve. Overall, the Eagles are 3-0 against Mountain West opponents but just 6-5 vs. current members of the conference.
