Notre Dame 19, Boston College 16: Video Highlights

For the first time in a long time, there are actually some highlights to enjoy from this game, but it wasn't enough as BC's late rally fell short, 19-16.

In one of the more electrifying plays of the season, Jeff Smith ran for a long touchdown with BC trailing 19-3 to bring BC back in to the game. Later, Smith threw a touchdown pass to Charlie Callinan to get the Eagles within 3, but BC couldn't pull in the onside kick and that was all she wrote.

It feels marginally good to at least have some highlights on offense to enjoy, but it once again feels like a superhuman defense is being wasted on an offense that mostly can't get out of its own way. What a frustrating season.

Notre Dame In Green Jerseys vs. BC... We've Seen That Before

bostonherald.com

The Boston Herald's Rich Thompson reflects on another of the iconic BC vs. Notre Dame games of the 90s and 2000s - the Eagles' 14-7 upset win over the title-contending Irish in 2002.

"Willingham’s wardrobe stunt was a master stroke of motivation, but it inspired the wrong team. The Eagles took advantage of three fumbles and two interceptions to upend the Irish, 14-7."

Thompson also gives his list of the top 5 moments in BC vs. Notre Dame history.
