Boston College has been bowl eligible every season since 2015, but has run into issues over the past four years. Lightning cancelled the Independence Bowl in 2018 against Boise State after the Eagles took a lead in the first quarter. After the 2019 season, BC played under interim head coach Rich Gunnell after then head coach Steve Addazio was fired at the conclusion of the season. 2020, Boston College was bowl eligible, but first year head coach Jeff Hafley and the team decided they would not accept an invite, due to the grind of the COVID-19 pandemic. Finally, in 2021 the Military Bowl was cancelled due to a COVID outbreak that decimated the Boston College roster.
