Boston College football is scheduled to kick off the 2009 season on Saturday, September 5th at 2:00 pm, when they host their cross-town rival Northeastern Huskies. BC has been getting prepared through four inter-squad scrimmages for the past couple of weeks. “This is an improvement,” said head coach Frank Spaniani. “Obviously, we have to make some (quarterback) decision. I think Dave (Shinskie) is in the mix but obviously if he can’t practice for a week, he’s out of the picture. (Justin) Tuggle has made a lot of strides. He wants to do it and he made some progress.”
Last season BC finished with a 9-5 total record. They advanced all the way to the ACC Championship where they lost to the #26 ranked Virginia Tech. They also competed in the Music City Bowl, but fell short 14-16 to Vanderbilt University. The last time BC and Northeastern met for a football game was in 1999 when BC held on to win 33-22.
