Boston College turned things around significant strides last season under new leadership from first year head coach Jeff Hafley.
The Eagles underwent an identity shift from their traditional hard-nosed teams predicated on running the football. Hafley transformed the program into a prolific passing offense anchored by Notre Dame transfer Phi Jurkovec.
Clemson hosts Boston College at Memorial Stadium on Oct. 2 because of last season’s modified ACC schedule. And if last year’s barn burner serves as any indication the Eagles will not go down without a fight.
Last meeting: Clemson defeated the Eagles 34-28 at Memorial Stadium last season.
