Boston College Football Announces Home-and-Home With Missouri

The Eagles will meet Missouri for the first time ever on the gridiron.

A common complaint around Boston College football this season has been the lack of a marquee non-conference game.

Many BC fans also squirmed a bit when the ACC voted to remain at only eight conference games, forcing the Eagles to schedule four non-conference opponents, including one from a "Power 5" conference every year.

Well, BC took a step toward beefing up future non-conference slates by adding SEC foe Missouri to the schedule for a home-and-home series. Boston College Athletic Communications announced today that the Eagles will host the Tigers on September 25, 2021, then travel to Missouri for a return game on September 14, 2024.

"We are excited to add a Southeastern Conference opponent to our future schedules," BC Athletic Director Brad Bates said in a statement.

The 2021 game at Alumni Stadium will be the first meeting of these two schools on the gridiron. Against SEC competition, Boston College is 13-19-1, dating back to 1937, and most recently lost to Vanderbilt in the 2008 Music City Bowl.*

Missouri is just the latest non-conference foe added by BC, as the Eagles already have several big games scheduled, all the way up to 2029. Over the next 13 seasons, BC also has home-and-homes scheduled with Notre Dame, Temple, Purdue, Ohio State and Stanford.

Boston College football's future non-conference games are listed below, with several slots left to be filled.

2017 – Notre Dame (H), Central Michigan (H)

2018 – Temple (H), Purdue (A)

2019 – Notre Dame (A)

2020 – Purdue (H)

2021 – Temple (A), Missouri (H)

2022 – Notre Dame (A)

2023 – Ohio State (A)

2024 – Ohio State (H), Missouri (A)

2025 – Notre Dame (H)

2028 – Stanford (H)

2029 – Stanford (A)
