Time: 3:30 p.m. EDT
Date: Saturday, Oct. 03, 2009
Place: Alumni Stadium, Chestnut Hill, Ma.
TV: ESPN/ABC Mirror
Spread: Boston College +4
Weather: T-Showers, 60% chance of rain, high 68 degrees
The Eagles host the Florida State Seminoles and ESPN's College GameDay today on the Heights. The school is tabbing this game as a "gold out" to honor Mark Herzlich's battle against cancer, so be sure to show up glad in gold.
This term is certainly thrown around lightly these days, but the term "virtual must-win" has been thrown around for both Florida State and Boston College. A loss by the Seminoles would put them in an 0-2 hole in the ACC Atlantic that may be too great to overcome. Similarly, BC can ill afford to drop to 1-2 in the ACC if they have any aspirations of winning the Atlantic Division for a third straight season.
I am in Boston for the game and Jeff will be offline for the game. Use this post to talk about the ESPN College GameDay telecast, the game and the rest of the day's college football action.
