Boston College knows their 2016 destination and opponent, and it’s going to be the 2016 Quick Lane Bowl, on December 26th against the Maryland Terrapins.
This matchup against the 6-6 Eagles and the 6-6 Terrapins is the first matchup against the former ACC foes since Maryland left the ACC to join the Big Ten in 2013. In their final matchup Boston College defeated the Terrapins 29-26, on the legs of running back Andre Williams and a last second field goal by place kicker Nate Freese.
This was the matchup that most predictions had for the Eagles before the selections were announced. For those of us worried about our strength of wins, Maryland doesn’t have much to crow about either as their only wins come against a down Michigan State team, Purdue, Howard (yes that Howard), UCF, FIU and Rutgers.
We will break down this matchup more as the week progresses. Congratulations to the players and coaches, now go win a bowl game!
