Boston College Vs. N.C. State: Greetings From Alumni Stadium

CHESTNUT HILL - It's your last chance to see this year's Boston College football team at home. But if you didn't want to, really, no one would blame you.

Boston College (2-7, 1-5 ACC) hosts North Carolina State (5-4, 2-3 ACC) in Senior Day, and more importantly, likely the last home game for head coach Frank Spaziani, barring wins in his final three games.

Prior to the game, the team will honor tight end Lars Anderson, corner back Donnie Fletcher, running back Montel Harris, wide receiver Ifeanyi Momah, punter/kicker Ryan Quigley, defensive tackle Kaleb Ramsey, offensive guard Nathan Richman, center Mark Spinney, linebacker Will Thompson and full back/defensive end Dan Williams as part of the Senior Day festivities (but hopefully we'll be getting Harris and Momah back for another year).

The storyline for today's game is the return of former head coach Tom O'Brien, who oh so rudely left the school to accept a position with N.C. State in 2007, where he has coached ever since.

BC proceeded to hire Jeff Jagodzinski to take his place, but coach Jags was only around from 2007 to 2008 before he was fired by athletic director Gene DeFilippo for seeking a position with the New York Jets without permission. After that, the Spaz era begin, and each season has been a downword spiral.

Many expect that Spaziani will be ousted following the season, but if he is able to turn things around in his final three games, he could save himself (much to the dismay of many fans). But with opponents like Notre Dame and Miami still on the schedule, it is unlikely.

Will BC be able to win and honor its seniors on Saturday? It's certainly possible, as this is logically the last shot for Boston College to win a football game this season. If anything, it should certainly be an interesting game.
