Game Time, TV Info Announced For Boston College vs. Northern Illinois 9/26 Game

13

For the third time this season, BC will kick off at 1 PM in an ESPN Tres special. Next Saturday's game between the Eagles and the Huskies was officially named an ESPN3/Watch ESPN App game today. On occasion, those ESPN3 games are picked up by local TV stations in New England (usually NESN+), so we'll keep our eyes open for that.

I'm slightly surprised this is ESPN3-only as Northern Illinois is a pretty good team that could well be on the verge of the Top 25, so even if BC loses to FSU this is at least a marginally interesting game. If BC does manage an upset win Friday night, maybe some things get reshuffled and this ends up on a luminous network like ESPN Classic or ESPN News.
