Whereas last week it looked like Boston College was on its way to an easy trip to New York City in late December, the Eagles might find themselves in a location more difficult to reach. Such is the case when you play a bad game at home.

With six wins already, the Eagles are going to get a bowl slot, especially considering the Atlantic Coast Conference might not even fill out all of their tie-ins. Yet, they were dealt another blow with Notre Dame’s thumping by Arizona State. The Fighting Irish might now fall into the ACC’s set and knock around the conference’s bowl teams.
