Boston College Vs. Virginia Tech: Eagles Host ACC Rival Hokies

Dennis Clifford and the Boston College Eagles (6-10, 1-1 ACC) host the Virginia Tech Hokies (11-5, 0-2 ACC) in their third ACC game of the season at 3 p.m. EDT on Saturday afternoon at Conte Forum (TV/Radio: ACC Network/WEEI).

Boston College picked up an improbable victory in their last game against the Clemson Tigers on Thursday, and the Eagles will look to continue their newly-found success in conference play as they host the Virginia Tech Hokies at 3:00 p.m. EDT on Saturday afternoon at Conte Forum in Chestnut Hill, MA (TV/Radio: ACC Network/WEEI).

BC and Virginia Tech have met 20 times, with the Eagles leading the all-time series 13-7. Ever since BC joined the Atlantic Coast Conference in the 2005-06 season, the Eagles have won seven of the 12 meetings with the Hokies. The Eagles have won three in a row against Virginia Tech and four of their last five battles with the Hokies. BC has only lost to Virginia Tech at home one time since joining the ACC -- an 81-73 win for the Hokies in overtime in 2008.

In the win over Clemson, Dennis Clifford scored a team-high 15 points and grabbed seven rebounds for Boston College, which shot an even 50 percent in the win (20-for-40). Lonnie Jackson scored 14 points and both Jordan Daniels and matt Humphrey finished with nine points for the Eagles.

Virginia Tech is coming off two straight losses to open ACC play, most recently falling to the Florida St. Seminoles on Tuesday. Erick Green scored 21 points and made 10-of-10 free throws, but the Hokies were limited to 30.5 percent shooting (18-for-59) in a 63-59 loss. Dorian Finney-Smith finished with nine points and 10 boards for Virginia Tech.

Boston College is on the road to face the North Carolina St. Wolfpack in its next game.
