It is always better to be favored to make a bowl than not. The Week 8 Boston College bowl projections are not exciting, but they do have the Eagles in a postseason exhibition.

Following Boston College’s 30-14 victory over the NC State Wolfpack on Saturday, those who were leery of the Eagles after the Colorado State defeat had just cause to slot the maroon and gold back into a bowl. With a loss in Raleigh, the theme of this article might have been “Eagles not featured in Week 8 bowl projections.”

The ones that are available to us all say something similar, in that they say the exact same thing. Get out your Smokey Robinson records because this week, we’re going to Motown.

Week 8 Boston College Bowl Projections: Syracuse Post-Standard

Patrick Stevens projects Boston College into the Quick Lane Bowl in Detroit. He does not offer an opponent for the Eagles, but forecasts a whopping eleven ACC schools into bowl games as we approach Week 8 of the college football season.

Week 8 Boston College Bowl Projections: SBN

Hope you’re not doing anything the day after Christmas, because SB Nation/Jason Kirk are also sending Boston College to Detroit in the Quick Lane Bowl. In this ACC-Big Ten matchup, they have the Eagles projected to play the Indiana Hoosiers. The Eagles and Hoosiers have only met once in football: a Boston College victory in 1938.

Week 8 Boston College Bowl Projections: CBS Sports

Stop me if you’ve heard this before: the Eagles are projected to go to the Quick Lane Bowl in Detroit, this time by CBS/Jerry Palm.

In this game, the Eagles would face a familiar foe in the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. These two teams used to see each other on the regular, having faced each other 26 times in history.

Detroit would be an easy trip for Eagles fans flying out of Logan Airport, and Ford Field is a good indoor venue for this wintry bowl game. Yet, it would be the day after Christmas, which is rarely ideal, and Detroit is probably not going to be that appealing.

Let’s hold out for one of the closer games (Yankee Stadium or Annapolis) or a Florida bowl.
