Eagles Close with Bowl Victory

Boston College coach Jeff Hafley completed his fourth season at Chestnut Hill with a drastic improvement in both record and offense from last season. The Eagles (7-6, 3-5 ACC) defeated SMU, 23-14, in the Wasabi Fenway Bowl at Fenway Park in Boston on Dec. 28 to snap a three-game losing streak. But BC won six of its last nine games to cap a successful season. It was the school’s first bowl win since 2016 when they defeated Maryland in the Quick Lane Bowl.

In 2022, Boston College finished with a disappointing 3-9 record. Hafley has recorded .500 records or above in three of his four seasons at the helm. Offensively, Boston College rounded out our top 10, improving its point production by 8.4 points (24.3 points per game) from the year before (15.9 points per game).

Sophomore quarterback and Waycross, Georgia, native Thomas Castellanos played a huge part of the Eagles success as he completed 189-of-330 passes (57.3%) for 2,248 yards (172.9 avg.) with 15 touchdowns thrown along with 14 interceptions. He was also a huge part of the Eagles rushing attack with 215 carries for 1,113 yards and 13 TDs.

One other ACC team made the top 10 with Georgia Tech garnering the top spot with 29.7 points per game this season, a productive 14.2 points average per game from the year before as the Yellow Jackets went from 15.5 points per game to 29.7 points.

Boston College is set to open its 2024 season with a road trip to Missouri on Sept. 14. FanDuel Sportsbook Massachusetts lists the Eagles as +80000 to win next year’s national championship. Missouri is +5000.
