New, comments

Here's a look at the last year by the numbers since the Eagles' last win over a conference opponent.

366. Days since Boston College last defeated an ACC opponent in football or basketball, considered the two "revenue sports" of college athletics. It's 366 because this year was a leap year, adding another day to the total. Boston College last defeated an ACC opponent on March 10, 2015, when they beat Georgia Tech in the ACC Basketball Championship Tournament, 66-65.

369. Days since Boston College last won an ACC regular season game against an opponent in those same two sports. The Eagles last defeated Wake Forest on the final day of the regular season last year, 79-61.

374. Days since Boston College last won a road ACC game. Before the Wake Forest game at home last year, they defeated Virginia Tech, 66-59, in Blacksburg. BC actually entered the ACC Tournament on a three-game winning streak, extended defeating NC State before the win over the Hokies. BC's seven wins in basketball this year came via two winning streaks - one of three games and one of four games.

132. Days since a men's sport has last won an ACC event. This excludes Olympic sports for the most part, but the last time a men's sport won an ACC game was the soccer regular season finale against Syracuse. They would lose to Clemson, 3-0, in the ACC Tournament before losing to Syracuse in the NCAA Tournament, 1-0.

300. If soccer isn't your bag and baseball is, it's been 300 days since a men's team won an ACC game. The baseball team defeated Notre Dame in its season finale back on May 15, 2015.

544. The streak will reach at least this number before football or basketball has a chance to win another conference game. The next football ACC game is the season opener on September 3, 2016 in Ireland against Georgia Tech. Even though baseball season is still ongoing, the focus of everyone's study has been in football and basketball, and the Eagles don't play again until they're on the Emerald Isle.

11-45-2. The record of BC's sports through the spring and winter seasons in ACC play in the current academic year. Only one of the five ACC teams (men/women soccer, men/women basketball, football) finished over .500 in league play with women's soccer going 5-3-2. Men's soccer went 4-4, women's basketball went 2-14, and men's basketball and football obviously went 0-fer.
