Boston College was off the past week, but that doesn’t mean the bowl projections have taken a break. Let’s take a look at what the major sites and publications have to say about BC and where they could be spending Christmas break.
New Era Pinstripe Bowl
Yankee Stadium, New York
Dec. 27, 5:15 p.m. (ESPN)
Bonagura: Boston College vs. Northwestern
Hale: Boston College vs. Minnesota
BC vs Northwestern would be a great matchup of two similar schools with some recent history (Revenge for the two eggs Spaz laid against them), and Minnesota as mentioned before in previous posts would be fun as well against PJ Fleck and his Row Your Boat team. Obviously New York is a great spot for Boston College to land.
Military (Annapolis, Md.): Boston College vs. Navy
AJ’s Take: Maryland is pretty mediocre in terms of destination, but I would still prefer that to Louisiana and Detroit. Navy worries me, that gimmick offense would be hard to plan for.
Boston College vs. Michigan - Pinstripe Bowl
AJ’s Take: This would easily be the most attractive matchup if BC ends up in New York. Don Brown against his old head coach, Jim Harbaugh and his dad khakis. Plus you have to imagine that Michigan isn’t going to have their heart in it as they had much loftier goals this season.
Military Bowl Presented by Northrop Grumman, Annapolis, Md. (1:30 p.m., ESPN) Boston College vs. Navy
AJ’s Take: As mentioned before, meh.
New Era Pinstripe Bowl: Boston College vs. Iowa
AJ’s Take: Iowa just pounded Ohio State on Saturday, so they have some pedigree. Two hard nosed teams facing off, again would be a fun matchup.
Quick Lane Bowl: Boston College vs. Indiana
AJ’s Take: Detroit against a bland Indiana team? No thanks.
So there are the projections. Where would you like to see BC bowl this year? Leave your thoughts below. And make sure to complain about bowls being pointless and a participation award as well!
