Army and Boston College have swapped their 2012-13 home-and-home football series dates, Army announced this afternoon.
Boston College will now travel to face Army at Michie Stadium in West Point, NY on Oct. 6, 2012. The Eagles will host the Black Knights at Alumni Stadium in Chestnut Hill on Oct. 5, 2013.
“With the latest round of conference realignment and the additions to the Atlantic Coast Conference, we felt it was in the best interests of both programs to make this schedule change,” Army Director of Athletics Boo Corrigan said. “We couldn’t be more pleased to add Boston College to our already exciting home schedule next year.”
The change gives the Black Knights seven home games in 2012: Northern Illinois (Sept. 15), Stony Brook (Sept. 29), Kent State (Oct. 13), Ball State (Oct. 27), Air Force (Nov. 3) and Temple (Nov. 17).
With the change to playing at Boston College in 2013, Army will have only five games at Michie Stadium.
Boston College has not announced their 2012 football schedule yet, but the Eagles are slated to play at Northwestern (Sept. 15), at Army (Oct. 6), home vs. Notre Dame (Nov. 10) and home vs. Maine.
In 2013, the Eagles travel to USC (Sept. 14) and host Army (Oct. 5), Stony Brook and Syracuse.
