If Boston College does not end up flying across the country to play in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl, then it is likely they'll be staying much closer to home as a participant in the Military Bowl Presented By Northrop Grumman, where if selected, they'd face East Carolina. The Pirates accepted a bid on Monday.
It's already been nicknamed the "Dominique Davis Bowl" -- Dominique Davis is the junior quarterback at ECU who spent two seasons with the B.C. Eagles (2007-08). And the ACC reporter for the News & Observer, J.P. Giglio, projects that's exactly what we'll get.
The Dominique Davis Bowl (against East Carolina) and the shortest trip possible for a BC fan base that has a chance to prove it can sell bowl tickets.
The Military Bowl is played at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C., on Dec. 29 (2:30 p.m.).
