Boston College GIF of the Year: Hexadecafinals, Matchup #8

New, 8 comments

Halfway through Round 1

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

It's been a fun journey through the GIF tournament so far, no doubt about it. And most exciting of all is that after today, we'll still just be halfway through the first round! Thank God, because football season still seems years away.

Yesterday was one of our closest battles of the year, with #Soar Eagles coming up big and taking down Hayes' Wild Goal to advance to Round 2. Angry Daz will go up against the winner of today's matchup.

Leary's Play of the Year

You could say that BC Athletics actually nominated this GIF. Why? It was chosen as BC Play of the Year at the athletics banquet. That's BC Women's Hockey's Kate Leary tying a Cornell defenseman into a knot with a goal early in the season.

Murphy to Bordner

Tyler Murphy with the passing touchdown! If you had paused this clip halfway through and asked anyone at Alumni Stadium what they thought was going to happen, not one person would have guessed "pass to the far corner of the endzone." Probably not even Murphy, given his reaction before throwing the ball.

Here's the updated bracket:

It's the last matchup of the week. Make those votes count.
