With the ACC”s new 10+1 model for the 2020 season, we say goodbye to some bitter rivalries and classic alternating home and away games, and say hello to this:
As you can see, the current plus one is an Ohio team that carries over from the original schedule, and it will serve as the season opener on September 12. The only requirement was that the game had to be played in the ACC team’s state. BC announced the game will also be played without fans. No decision has been made yet on the remaining five home games, but they will be played at reduced capacity best-case scenario. The school will await word from state and local officials before making an ultimate decision.
ACC play will kick-off for the Eagles at Duke. After an early bye week, the Eagles take on UNC, the new darling of the ACC with high expectations. The next bye week won’t come for quite a while, after the home game against Notre Dame in mid-November. The Eagles will take on Louisville for Thanksgiving weekend at Alumni Stadium (sorry, Syracuse), and wrap things up in December at Virginia, a team BC is undefeated against. Pitt and Georgia Tech will be the other two home games, and Jeff Hafley’s team will also hit the road to take on Virginia Tech, Clemson, and Syracuse.
BC handily defeated three of these foes last season, but this is the start of the Jeff Hafley era. A new over/under for season wins has yet to be set officially, but whatever it may be, it’ll be wrong (probably 3.5-4 because people are fools). Regardless, BC is in the bottom four in odds to win the ACC, truly insulting the company we’re in. But they’ll see. They’ll ALL SEE. EAGLES ON THE WARPATH OO! AH!
