The Notre Dame Fighting Irish end their home season this week vs the Boston College Eagles on Saturday, November 19. Live coverage of Senior Day begins at 2:30 p.m. ET on NBC. See below for additional information and how to watch/stream Notre Dame vs Boston College.
Though the Eagles are feared by Irish fans thanks to their dashing upsets in 1993 and 2002, Notre Dame leads the all-time series 17-9 and has won eight straight against Boston College.
The No. 18 Irish (7-3) are coming off a 35-32 win over Navy last week. Junior quarterback Drew Pyne had the best performance of his Notre Dame career by throwing four touchdown passes in the first half and adding an 11-yard scoring run, however, the offense was stifled in the second half as Pyne was sacked five times.
Despite pulling off upset victories against better opponents this season — namely, then-No. 4 Clemson, then-No. 16 Syracuse and then-No. 16 BYU, the Irish have struggled when playing against weaker and unranked teams. If pondering the spread, Notre Dame is 0-4 ATS when favored by more than a touchdown, losing outright to both Marshall and Stanford.
The Irish focus this week will be a win, but in addition to that, honoring their seniors.
“We have 25 guys that will be recognized for their last game in Notre Dame Stadium,” head coach Marcus Freeman said Monday. “That’s where a lot of the motivation and focus will be in terms of making sure we finish this home regular season off the right way for those seniors.”
The Eagles (3-7) picked up their first win against a top-25 foe since 2014 last weekend, beating No. 16 North Carolina State, 21-20. Sophomore quarterback Emmett Morehead, playing in place of injured starter Phil Jurkovec, completed a two-yard touchdown pass to receiver Joe Griffin with only 14 seconds left.
“It felt like no one wanted to leave the locker room,” Boston College head coach Jeff Hafley said. “It was like we had to go around and tell everybody, ‘Let’s go, let’s get to the busses, let’s get to the plane.’
“So we probably took more time than I’ve ever seen just with guys not wanting to leave. It was emotional in the locker room. Guys were dancing, guys were hugging. There was tears in some guys’ eyes. Guys were screaming. It was a very, very cool experience.”
