Get up, it’s (finally) gameday. UMass gameday is here, and today the Boston College Eagles play their first real game in 242 days.
Almost eight months is how long Eagles fans have waited to see their team get back on the field, and that is how long the sting of the AdvoCare V100 Bowl has lasted. Yet, hope springs eternal on opening day, and the Eagles’ chance at redemption begins today at Gillette Stadium.
