The next Round of 16 matchup in our Ultimate Boston College Football Game series pits Group E winner, the 2003 win over Notre Dame, against the Pool F runner-up, a 2004 victory over West Virginia in BC's final season in the Big East.
Here's the current bracket:
Random fact: Eagles freshman Ryan Ohliger connected on three field goals of 44, 47 and 36 yards in the 2004 win against West Virginia, falling one short of the single-game school record of four set by Brian Lowe on three separate occasions (1986 vs. Army and West Virginia, 1989 vs. Georgia Tech). Lowe's school record four FGs in a game was matched four times over the last three seasons -- by Steve Aponavicius in 2009 vs. Maryland and by Nate Freese, twice in 2010 (Florida State and Kent State) and 2011 (Wake Forest). Coincidently (?) the school's single-game FG record has been matched four times over the last three seasons.
Which victory advances to the Quarterfinals? Voting will remain open for one week.
