Despite what is shaping up to be a divided house at Gillette Stadium, Boston College is considered the away team as they take the field this afternoon against the Massachusetts Minutemen. So it's not surprising that the Eagles will be wearing the all-white road threads this afternoon.
The Eagles donned the all-white look for five of the six road games last season, including:
-- the greatest road win (at Maryland)
-- the ugliest road win (at New Mexico State)
-- the "moral victory" road loss (at Clemson)
-- the gut-wrenching road loss (at Syracuse) AND
-- by far, the worst road loss (at USC)
With such a variety of results, the jinx factor can be thrown right out the window in this one.
As for UMass, it appears the Minutemen will come out in their maroon tops, white pants and white helmets.
