The 2020 football schedule was announced yesterday, and will feature seven home games, including three primetime national TV appearances for Coach Hafley’s Eagles.
1 AD (After Daz) will start at home with Syracuse, with an ACC clash, similar to last season with Virginia Tech. Speaking of, we’ll be playing in Lane Stadium on a Thursday night this year, evoking some of the memories of years past. Two major revenge games on the schedule with Kansas and Purdue. Given both of these games were two of the most recent major lapses we’ve experienced, they’ll serve as good barometers to how well Coach Hafley has the team ready to play outside of the conference. Clemson will come to town on Friday night in early October. The two newcomers this season will be Ohio in week two, and UNC who BC hasn’t played since Daz year one in 2013. The Eagles will have a nice mid-season Halloween game against Holy Cross that will send us into the homestretch where three of the last four games will be on the road. The bye week will come after week six at home to Louisville (and before the Thursday night game).
Friday, Sept. 4 Syracuse
Saturday, Sept. 12 Ohio
Saturday, Sept. 19 at Kansas
Saturday, Sept. 26 Purdue
Friday, Oct. 2 Clemson
Saturday, Oct. 10 Louisville
Thursday, Oct. 22 at Virginia Tech
Saturday, Oct. 31 Holy Cross
Saturday, Nov. 7 at NC State
Saturday, Nov. 14 at Florida State
Saturday, Nov. 21 North Carolina
Saturday, Nov. 28 at Wake Forest
Overall, I have to say this is a really coaching-transition-friendly schedule. Pending the Phil Jurkovec waiver news, BC should be competitive in most every game, and already has a great opportunity to break the seven-win ceiling.
