Boston College Eagles Football Tickets
The Boston College Eagles has a long and vaunted college football history. Boston College's first football team took the field in 1892. This makes it one of the oldest college football teams in the country. The team adopted the “ ”Eagles“ ” nickname in 1920. The 1920 team was undefeated at 8-0, and it won its first-ever Eastern Championship. Throughout the years, the Boston College Eagles has fielded many highly entertaining and successful teams. The 1940 team was perhaps the best in the school's history. It was a favorite of sportswriter Grantland Rice. During the 1980s, Doug Flutie quarterbacked the team to an exciting, nationally televised win over the Miami Hurricanes. It put the Eagles back on the national landscape in a big way. In terms of moving on to the NFL, the 2018 Eagles was the most successful in BC history. Four players were drafted, and many others signed as free agents.
