(An outsiders view of what is happening at Boston College, AKA The Heights)_

Boston College will probably need to beat Syracuse in its regular season finale on Saturday afternoon at The Dome AND also have Florida State lose against Florida to gain an invitation to The Pinstripe  Bowl at Yankee Stadium, which seems to be the high end of the bowl chart for the Eagles.

The Atlantic Coast Conference has agreements with as many as 11 bowl games this season and, if everything works out, the ACC could place as many as 10 teams in bowl games.

The ACC bowl structure is multi-tiered. BC, which will finish 7-5 with a win and 6-6 with a loss, is not considered a contender for any of the Florida ACC bowls. The best guess for the Eagles is one of four bowl slots: Pinstripe  Bowl, Dec. 27,  Independence Bowl in Shreveport, La. Dec. 27, Sun Bowl in El Paso, Tx. Dec 28, Military Bowl in Annapolis, Md. Dec. 28. The rest of this article is available to subscribers only – to become a subscriber click here.
