From the ACC:
This year’s game marks the first time Boston College and Miami have met on a Friday since the famed “Flutie Miracle” game of 1984. That day, Flutie, the Boston College Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Doug Flutie won the game with a last-play “Hail Mary” pass play which was caught by BC’s Gerald Phelan in the end zone for a touchdown, giving the Eagles a 47-45 victory at the old Orange Bowl Stadium. The dramatic win by the Eagles is still their only victory over Miami in Miami.
