For months, we waited and waited for the first home game of the 2013 Boston College football season to kick off on August 31. It seems like that was just yesterday, but as for today, we’ve already reached the final one.
This is a very important game, as it’s not only the seniors’ last home game in maroon and gold, but it could also clinch bowl eligibility for the Eagles. The guys have worked hard towards this goal and they deserve to go out winners.
If you won’t be joining me at Alumni Stadium this morning for the tailgate and this afternoon for the festivities, you’ll be missing out. Your gameday info:
