The BCS commissioners and Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick met on Wednesday in Chicago and agreed on a four-team playoff format for college football. If the the BCS presidential oversight committee approves the motion in their June 26th meeting in Washington, the new system would be in place for the 2014 season. (more)
Eagles RB Montel Harris ran for 104 yards while scoring three touchdowns as Boston College went on to run circles around Northeastern University 54-0 last Saturday. Legendary former Heisman Trophy Winner Doug Flutie’s nephew Billy Flutie caught his first career touchdown pass. BC football is now 5-0 against Northeastern with a total scoring gap of 133 points between the two teams.
After being down 21-0 in the first quarter, Northeastern may have finally realized that they should wait until February during hockey season to play BC. In Boston’s annual Bean Pot hockey tournament between BU, Northeastern, BC, and Harvard, Northeastern has won four times to BC’s 14. Boston College’s next game is set for September 12th against Kenn State at 2:00 pm.

Boston College football is scheduled to kick off the 2009 season on Saturday, September 5th at 2:00 pm, when they host their cross-town rival Northeastern Huskies. BC has been getting prepared through four inter-squad scrimmages for the past couple of weeks. “This is an improvement,” said head coach Frank Spaniani. “Obviously, we have to make some (quarterback) decision. I think Dave (Shinskie) is in the mix but obviously if he can’t practice for a week, he’s out of the picture. (Justin) Tuggle has made a lot of strides. He wants to do it and he made some progress.”
Last season BC finished with a 9-5 total record. They advanced all the way to the ACC Championship where they lost to the #26 ranked Virginia Tech. They also competed in the Music City Bowl, but fell short 14-16 to Vanderbilt University. The last time BC and Northeastern met for a football game was in 1999 when BC held on to win 33-22.
