There are two winless teams in the ACC Atlantic Division. That might very well still be the case when the Syracuse Orange and Boston College Eagles meet on Saturday, October 22. Perhaps to no one’s surprise, the game has been scheduled for 12:30 p.m., close enough to Nooner as you can get without being one.
Syracuse-BC will kick off at 12:30 p.m. on Oct. 22, the ACC announces. Game will be broadcast on ACC Network.— Stephen Bailey (@Stephen_Bailey1) October 10, 2016
The good news(?) is that the game will be televised on the ACC Network, so you should have plenty of options to watch the Orange in what could be their last reasonably-winnable game of the year.
The Orange enter this weekend’s contest against Virginia Tech with a 2-4 record and it’s likely to assume they’ll be 2-5 when they take on the Eagles. At that point, whatever slim hopes of a bowl game rest in winning that game and then surprising more than a few other ACC teams.
Perhaps we just need to focus on making this all about the Orange Eagle Trophy.
