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:

(A1) 2004 W vs. Notre Dame vs. (B2) 2008 W vs. Wake Forest -- in progress
(B1) 2007 W vs. Clemson vs. (A2) 2005 W vs. Clemson -- in progress

Pool G Winner TBD vs. Pool H Runner-Up TBD -- Group G and Group H in progress
Pool H Winner TBD vs. Pool G Runner-Up TBD

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.
