The Boston College Eagles are set to add UConn and Wagner to their future football schedules, according to a report by AJerseyGuy.com.
Boston College is closing in on a deal to host the Wagner Seahawks at Alumni Stadium in Chestnut Hill, likely on Sept. 10, 2016. The game would be the first ever meeting between the two schools.
The Eagles are also set to resume their series with UConn with the first matchup on November 19, 2016 at Alumni Stadium. BC would then travel to face the Huskies at Rentschler Field in East Hartford Nov. 18, 2017.
UConn will then travel to Boston College again in 2022, and then BC will return the trip to East Hartford in 2023. Dates for the four games were confirmed and reported by The Hartford Courant.
Boston College and UConn have met 12 times on the gridiron. The Eagles lead the series 10-0-2 and have nine straight dating back to 1912.
The addition of UConn and Wagner would complete Boston College’s 2016 football schedule. The Eagles are also slated to visit UMass (at Gillette Stadium) on Sept. 17 and Buffalo on Oct. 1. BC was previously slated to host UMass, but will now visit as a concession for the Minutemen replacing a previously scheduled game with UConn.
In ACC play, the Eagles face Georgia Tech in Ireland, host Clemson, Louisville, and Syracuse, and travel to Florida State, NC State, Wake Forest, and Virginia Tech.
Boston College will also reportedly add two additional games to their series with UMass. The two teams are currently scheduled to meet on Sept. 17, 2016 at UMass and Sept. 1, 2018 at BC. According to reports, the two new games will be played in the early 2020’s
