Bowl Projections: Boston College Likely Headed To Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl To Play Nevada

We won't know officially yet where Boston College is headed for their bowl game this year, but it seems like it is down to one option for the Eagles: the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl in San Francisco, which is where most projections had them headed for some time now. 

Allow BC Interruption to explain

With UConn winning the a share of the Big East title and heading to the BCS (in all likelihood, the Fiesta Bowl), the Big East and Notre Dame's bowl destinations seem to be all but set. UConn is likely headed west to play Oklahoma. West Virginia appears headed to the Champs Sports Bowl, while Notre Dame will head to the Sun Bowl.

BC's bowl fate was largely tied to the Big East bowl selections. Specifically, our fate depended on whether Notre Dame would get an invite to the Champs Sports Bowl (against likely N.C. State) or the Sun Bowl (likely Miami). All indications are that Notre Dame will be invited to the Sun Bowl to play Miami.

All that essentially leaves B.C. with the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl, where they would play ... Nevada, who officially accepted an invitation to the bowl in San Francisco on Saturday. The Wolfpack finished 12-1 this season and famously knocked Boise State out o the national championship picture. 

The Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl, played in AT&T Park (home of the San Francisco Giants), is scheduled for Jan. 9, at 9:00 p.m. EST and will be televised on ESPN. 

ESPN's Bowl Selection Special show is set for Sunday night at 9 p.m. You can follow along with all the bowl pairings at SB Nation, and for more on B.C. football visit BC Interruption
