sLast week may have taken some of the wind out of Boston College’s sails, but don’t let that kill the hype of this week’s Holy War! Both teams are 1-1 coming off emotional losses, so expect both teams to be doing everything they can to bounce back.

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 special BC menus, BC decorations all over the bar, playing the fight song for every TD, and the staff all wear BC shirts. Dewey's Pub has also opened their doors to BC fans and are continuing to deliver some great service. Most importantly, there will be free 30 minutes of Bud Light open bar prior to every kickoff and PREGAME (did someone say #pregame?). At halftime, for the holy war, there will also be free drinks sponsored by Jameson and maroon & gold jello shots (You probably thought you were done with those when you graduated, didn’t you?). Their weekly specials of Lower Dining Hall Steak and Cheese, the New England Classic, and the "ALS Wing Bucket Challenge" will continue as well! So put on your Superfan shirt and get out to Dewey’s and Joshua Tree! They should be absolutely rocking this weekend!
The Chicago Chapter of the BC Alumni Association is doing a game watch for the Notre Dame game this week at Tobacco Road Tap Room! There will be a $35 all you can drink wristband for domestic beers and well/rail drinks for 3 hours starting 30 minutes prior to kickoff, as well as more food and drink specials! Chicago Alumni should get out there to enjoy
BC’s BEST CHANCE TO WIN
The Eagles are coming off a brutal loss against Wake Forest, so they need to build early momentum. A quick score would do. Aside from that, offensively BC needs to cut down on the mistakes and drops. Defensively, Harold Landry needs to have one of the games of his career against another potential first round pick Mike McGlinchey. Hopefully fellow DE’s Zach Allen and Wyatt Ray can get in on the action as well; as they say, “the more the merrier.”
