Boston College MAC Football Schedule-A-Team: Northern Illinois Huskies

All-Time History With Boston College: 1 game (1-0-0)
Last Faced: 1971 (BC wins, 20-10)

Travel (if necessary): Maybe about two hours or so out to Illinois.

Mutual Interest Factor: Confirmed. Boston College has scheduled a home-and-home with the Huskies to begin next season.

Intrigue Factor: A little bit, as the Huskies are probably the best program in the MAC over the last several years.

The Verdict: Would obviously be fine with a home-and-home; not opposed to what has been scheduled.

Northern Illinois is roughly the farthest MAC team from Boston College, and yet, this may be the most interesting game. The Huskies are a quality opponent as these things go. It will be fun to have some MACtion on the Heights.

Boston College MAC Football Schedule-A-Team: Ohio Bobcats

All-Time History With Boston College: 1 game (0-1-0)
Last Faced: 1966 (Ohio wins, 23-14)

Travel (if necessary): However long it takes to get to the other Ohio MAC schools.

Mutual Interest Factor: None in the lifetimes of any current student.

Intrigue Factor: Again, there has been none in most of our lifetimes.

The Verdict: Might schedule a one-off; would not be opposed to either/or.

Does not really matter if Boston College does or does not schedule the Bobcats. In fairness, it probably does not matter much to them, either.
