For those of you paying attention, you should know by now that the BC Alumni Association of New York has two "BC bars" in Manhattan, where each week fans and alumni can gather to watch the game. At Joshua Tree, the long-standing home of BC Alumni in New York, continues to host with great drink deals. Dewey's Pub keeps their doors open to BC fans and are continuing to deliver some great service. Their weekly specials of Lower Dining Hall Steak and Cheese, the New England Classic, and the "ALS Wing Bucket Challenge" will continue as well!
BC’s BEST CHANCE TO WIN
UConn is really bad, so BC is rightly expected to win this game and get to a bowl without having to resort to APR rankings. AJ Dillon and the offensive line should see great success against an overmatched Husky defense. With the ground game rolling and a historically terrible passing defense (375 yards/game), Darius Wade can hopefully settle in and get rolling. The defense, assuming they play like they have in the past three weeks, should have little trouble with Bryant Shirreffs and the UConn offense. Go Eagles!
