BC to Host Northeastern for Home Opener

By on August 31, 2009 in ,

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.
