Bowl Projections: Post Week 8
Bowl projections are just that, guesses. But with the Eagles sitting at 4-2, and a bowl looking very likely, let's look at where the prognosticators have BC landed if there is a bowl season. It's important to note that there have been a handful of bowls who have already cancelled their game this year, and all signs point to more doing the same.
Kyle Bonagura- Pinstripe Bowl vs. Iowa
Mark Schlabach- Pinstripe Bowl vs. Northwestern
Analysis: In just six games, Jeff Hafley has exorcised a handful of demons from the past ten years. Steve Addazio went 0-2 in the Pinstripe Bowl during his tenure. If Jeff Hafley can go into Yankee Stadium and win a bowl game there, that would be another step he has taken to improve upon the past.
Sun Bowl vs. Washington
Analysis: A bowl game that has eluded Boston College, but one that has been pretty attractive in term's of relative prestige and solid opponent. Washington is a perennial Top 25 team, and this would be a great way to end the season.
Sun Bowl vs. Cal
Analysis: Similar to what was said above, however this game has an added wrinkle that would be intriguing. Defensive lineman Luc Bequette was a three year starter at Cal before he transferred to BC, believing that the Pac-12 wouldn't have a season.
Fenway Bowl vs. Memphis
Analysis: There is a lot of worry amongst the BC fan base that this is going to become the defacto "Boston College Bowl", due to proximity and low placement on the bowl pecking order. Important to note that Brett McMurphy reported that sources were telling him that the Fenway Bowl won't be happening this year.
