In the Week 11 Boston College bowl projections, and every week going forward, we know now the Eagles’ place is secure. It is a matter of where they will go.

Could Boston College find themselves in the bright lights of New York City or the honorable grounds of the United States Naval Academy? Might it also be some part unknown to this program in El Paso or Tampa Bay, or yes, even Detroit?

This is a good problem to have. At least we know there will be a game, and soon, we will examine the possible landing spots, but for now, where do the college football pundits send Boston College?

(Please note: It is our wish that someday, the ACC will have a tie-in to the Bahamas Bowl.)

Week 11 Boston College Bowl Projections: CBS Sports

Jerry Palm of CBS Sports has an intriguing matchup for the Eagles in the Military Bowl in Annapolis on December 27. There, Boston College would face the Cincinnati Bearcats, a team of questionable defensive caliber that is nevertheless a win away from qualifying to get there.

Brant Parsons of the Sentinel is also on-board with sending Boston College to the Pinstripe Bowl. At that game, the Eagles would face the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, a former Big East foe that happened to lose said bowl game last season to Notre Dame. There are probably a few older Eagles fans who would want a crack at Rutgers again, but if they don’t beat Indiana after their bye to get to 6-4, they may never get their sixth win.
