Football Headed To Tucson


Dec. 5, 1999

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - The Boston College football team is headed to Tucson, Ariz., to play in its first postseason bowl game since 1994. On Sunday afternoon, BC officially accepted a bid to play in the Dec. 31 Bowl.

"This is a great tribute to our coaching staff and our players, especially our seniors," Coach Tom O'Brien says. "We are extremely excited to be going to Tucson. I've said before that our team might not be as talented as some, but our players have hearts bigger than all the oceans in the world."

After going 4-7 last season, BC engineered the third-best turnaround in college football this year, finishing the regular season with an 8-3 record.
