Fall Olympic Sports: Dates to Circle

A look at some key days this fall

The Boston College athletics fall season is in full swing, with four sports active this coming weekend. Here’s a look at some key dates to circle in the fall.

Friday, August 26: Men’s Soccer at Quinnipiac

The #8-ranked men’s soccer team enters the season with high expectations, and their first chance to deliver comes tomorrow at 4 PM in a potentially tricky opener at Quinnipiac.

Sunday, August 28: Men’s & women’s soccer both take on BU

Rather than simply piggybacking off the hockey rivalry, BC and BU have actually built a competitive rivalry in soccer, featuring a number of tight and intense games played in front of big crowds. On Sunday, both the men and women take on BU; the men host the Terriers at 5 in Newton, while the Women play at BU at 7 (poor planning, IMO, but there ya go).

Friday, September 9: Field Hockey at Syracuse

The Field Hockey team takes on the defending national champions in an early-season clash, hoping to prove their own championship credentials. The Eagles are ranked #8 nationally... but #7 in the ACC.

Saturday, September 10: Men’s Soccer vs. Duke

The first ACC home game for the men comes under the lights against an always solid Duke team.

Saturday, September 17: Women’s Soccer at Duke

Last year, Duke made it to the national title game. This year, they will be another tough test for the Eagles.

Thursday, October 6: Women’s Soccer vs. Florida State

Perennial powerhouse FSU travels to the Heights for a marquee late season contest.

Saturday, October 8: Men’s Cross Country - New England Championships

The Eagles seek to take home some regional hardware.

Friday, October 14: Volleyball at Georgia Tech

The Volleyball team makes an appearance on “ACC Network Extra” on ESPN3 and possibly regional sports networks.

Saturday, October 22-Sunday, October 23: Rowing at Head of the Charles

BC rowers annually participate in the famous Head of the Charles Regatta, and will be out in force again this year.

Sunday, October 30: Field Hockey vs. UConn

Field Hockey wraps up the regular season with a battle against UConn, the team that bounced them from last year’s NCAA tournament.
