Boston College no longer ACC pushover

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.
