2014 Boston College Football: USC Gameday Morning


It might shape up to be a lousy night to be outdoors in Chestnut Hill, but it’s USC gameday for the Boston College Eagles.

More from Football

For the second straight week, Boston College will play a football game at night on ESPN, except this time, they will face a top-ten opponent in the #9 USC Trojans.

A loss tonight, depending on how severe, would still disappoint the masses heading to Alumni Stadium, but a win — wouldn’t that be something. Let’s cross that bridge when we come to it.
