Boston College Bowl Projections: Post Week 12

Two bowls are popular this week in the projections, as it looks like the experts like BC in New York or El Paso, Texas.

Boston College was off last week and currently sit at 5-4 with a bowl game all but a certain for the Eagles. But where could the Eagles land in December or January? Let's look at where various media outlets have Jeff Hafley's squad heading.


Kyle Bonagura- Pinstripe Bowl vs. Iowa

Mark Schlabach- Pinstripe Bowl vs. Maryland

Analysis: Not the biggest fan of watching the Eagles play in the frozen tundra, where they are 0-2 in recent bowl matchups. Last time they were there the turf was so bad, AJ Dillon looked like he was on ice skates. A rematch with Iowa on the tundra of Yankee Stadium? Not too keen on that. Maryland? The last team the Eagles have beaten in a bowl game (Quick Lane, 2016)

Sun Bowl vs. Utah

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. Utah has been a perennial Top 25 team, and this would be a great way to end the season. The crazy part of this? Boston College sits at 5-4, and Utah is 0-1. That is correct, the Utes have only played one game all season.

Pinstripe Bowl vs. Iowa

Analysis: Seems like the Pinstripe Bowl is growing in popularity for the Eagles as a landing spot. Iowa is a good physical team, and would be a great matchup for Boston College.
