The Jay McGillis Memorial Spring Game will return to The Heights this Saturday, April 24 at 11 AM, giving BC fans an early look at the 2021 version of the Eagles.

The game will be televised live on ACC Network (so much like during football season, this is your time to figure out how to get a trial or brief subscription to a streaming service that carries ACC Network if you still have Comcast/Xfinity in the Boston area). Chris Cotter and BC legend Mark Herzlich will call the game for the ACC Network.

According to BC’s press release, attendance at the Spring Game will be limited to relatives of the players. However, they are moving forward with their intention to welcome fans back to Alumni Stadium this fall and remain in the process of actively selling season tickets.

The spring game has bounced around in terms of format, attendance, and whether it actually even happens at BC in recent years, with the game being canceled last year amid the onset of the pandemic.

Coach Jeff Hafley has described his intention of having this year’s spring game be “game-like” with a normal game flow and scoring system, rather than the points system and situational setups that became a common sight during Steve Addazio’s tenure at BC.
