Boston College football begins its 2020 campaign against Duke and will play an 11-game schedule with 10 ACC matchups.
Notre Dame’s Ian Book threw for 239 yards and three touchdowns and added 66 rushing yards, as the Eagles lost the 25th edition of the Holy War, 40-7 and didn’t score in the second half.
To reach six wins and bowl eligibility, BC will have to navigate the sixth-toughest rest of season schedule—which features four of five games away from home.
After a bounceback win over N.C. State, BC has the unenviable task of heading to South Carolina to face a Tigers squad that has won 22 straight games.
Dan Metzdorf pitched into the eighth for his sixth quality start in a row and BC used a 10-run outburst from its lineup to roll past the Irish and clinch an ACC Tournament spot.
The Irish used a 23-0 run in the third quarter to erase any doubt, building a lead as big as 56 points in a convincing rout of BC.
The Eagles turned the ball over 24 times, committed 21 personal fouls, and were plagued by poor first and fourth quarters in a blowout road loss to No. 1 Notre Dame.
