Now that the Boston College Athletics 2016-17 season has effectively ended, it is time to turn the page to the 2017-18 season. With that comes the announcement of game times for football games early in the season. Eagles fans can now know what time the first three games of the season will be, and where those games can be watched on TV.
The first game of the season will be played on Friday, Sept 1. at Northern Illinois. The game will be played at 9:30 PM and will be broadcast across the country on CBS Sports Network.
The second game will be the home opener at Alumni Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 9 against in-conference rival Wake Forest. The game will be held at 1 p.m. and will be broadcast on the ACC Network’s online platform, ACC Network Extra.
Finally, the latest installment of the Holy War, Boston College’s greatest football rivalry, will be held on Saturday, Sept 16. against Notre Dame. Kickoff will be at noon, and the game will be broadcast on either ABC or ESPN.
The ACC also announced the start time for BC’s home game against Florida State. The game, to be played on Friday, Oct 27, will start at 8 PM and will be broadcast on ESPN.
The rest of the season will likely be released closer to those specific weeks, as they will likely be contingent on the ACC’s protocol for scheduling and broadcasting.
