IT’S A BOUT BETWEEN TWO UNDEFEATED ACC TEAMS FOLKS. Both teams won their initial matchups, with Boston College grinding out a win against Northern Illinois while Wake Forest blew the doors off FCS Presbyterian. For two teams who really want to be bowl eligible, this is a very big game. Let’s get to the facts:

Eagles in New York City
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 DURING HALFTIME (that’s new this week). They will also be serving the Lower Dining Hall Steak and Cheese AND the New England Classic, as well as putting out the "ALS Wing Bucket Challenge" (a bucket of wings and Bud Light with $5 going to ALS charity). There will be BC themed cocktails, BC shirts for staff, and BC music (because “For Boston” is the most beautiful song in the world and needs to be shared). This week, Wake Forest fans will also be there to watch the game at Dewey’s, so the LinkedIn potential is even greater than last week.
BC’s BEST CHANCE TO WIN
Wake Forest has brought out the absolute worst in BC the past few years, so it needs to be a grinding win for BC. If Anthony Brown can show his skill against an good ACC defense and the front seven disrupts the pocket for John Wolford (the brother of former BC fullback Bobby Wolford), the Eagles can grab this one.
