So far, media outlets have projected three possible bowl destinations for Boston College: Shreveport (the Independence Bowl), St. Petersburg (the St. Petersburg Bowl), and Detroit (the Quick Lane Bowl).
But one projection seems to be coming up more than any other: a renewing of hostilities between BC and Maryland at the Quick Lane Bowl in Detroit. ESPN and Sports Illustrated posted their bowl projections, and both major outlets are predicting BC to end up in Detroit.
NBC Sports and SB Nation are the other outlets to have picked BC vs. Maryland in Detroit, which has been the most common prediction for the Eagles.
The Quick Lane Bowl is set for Monday, December 26 at 2:30 PM on ESPN. The game will be played at Ford Field.
This would be an interesting matchup between former conference foes. Both teams had mirror image seasons: they both went 6-6, largely on the back of beating down the bottom of their schedule while struggling against the top of their power conferences.
We should know BC’s bowl destination on Sunday.
