Boston College Vs. Miami One Of ACC's Most Lopsided Series

As most are aware, Boston College has had limited success against the Miami Hurricanes all-time. In the 27-game all-time series, the Eagles have come away victorious just four times -- 1958, 1975, 1984 and 2007. BC's .148 winning percentage against the U makes Eagles-Hurricanes one of the more lopsided series in ACC history. But it turns out it's hardly the most lopsided all-time series in the conference.

That distinction goes to the Duke Blue Devils, who in 17 tries have gone 0-17 against the Florida State Seminoles. With the Seminoles on this year's schedule as a cross-divisional rotating opponent, Duke got another shot at notching its first win over FSU. Duke lost 41-16, the first of the Blue Devil's current six game losing streak.

Here are the 10 most lopsided football series between current ACC members:

1. .000: Duke 0-17 against Florida State
2. .000: Virginia 0-5 against Boston College
3. .091: Maryland 2-20 against Florida State
4. .111: Duke 1-8 against Miami
5. .139: North Carolina 2-15-1 against Florida State
6. .148: Boston College 4-23 against Miami
7. .176: Virginia 3-14 against Florida State
8. .185: Virginia 8-37-1 against Clemson
9. .217: Wake Forest 6-23-1 against Florida State
10. .227: Wake Forest 17-59-1 against Clemson

The BC-Miami series is also one of the unfortunate victims of ACC expansion. Now the Eagles and Hurricanes hook up just twice in a five-six year period, meaning that this will be the first time this year's senior class will face the U. But BC-Miami is also hardly the lone victim of ACC expansion. In fact, the football series between Boston College and Miami isn't even one of the ten longest ACC football series that has been disrupted by expansion.

Here are the ten longest ACC all-time football series that are no longer played annually:

1. 116 games: North Carolina vs. Wake Forest
2. 81 games: Duke vs. N.C. State
3. 69 games: North Carolina vs. Maryland
4. 56 games: Virginia vs. N.C. State
5. 55 games: North Carolina vs. Clemson
6. 52 games: Duke vs. Clemson
7. 50 games: Duke vs. Maryland
8. 48 games: Virginia Tech vs. N.C. State
9. 47 games: Virginia vs. Wake Forest
10. 46 games: Virginia vs. Clemson

16. 27 games: Miami vs. Boston College
