Miami vs. Boston College: Where to Watch, Weather and Odds



The Miami Hurricanes, currently standing at 6-5 overall and 2-5 in the ACC, are determined to halt their three-game slide in ACC play. November has proven challenging with losses to North Carolina State, Florida State, and the Louisville Cardinals. Friday’s upcoming clash against the Boston College Eagles (6-5, 3-4 ACC) presents a crucial opportunity for Mario Cristobal and his team to reclaim their stride on the field. This game holds added significance as it precedes crucial bowl game practices scheduled for December, marking the Hurricanes’ first bowl game appearance since the 2020 season under former head coach Manny Diaz.

Both teams have secured bowl eligibility, with a shared ambition for a seventh win that would secure a winning season. Miami, once riding high with four consecutive wins and a No. 17 ranking in The Associated Press Top 25, is now at risk of concluding the season with a four-game losing streak. Conversely, Boston College aims to evade a three-game losing streak and seeks its first seven-win season since 2018, with a potential shot at an eight-win season—the first since 2009.

Recalling their last encounter in 2018, Boston College emerged victorious in the Eagles’ Red Bandana Game, beating the then-No. 25 Miami by a score of 27-14. Historical statistics reveal Miami’s dominance in the Big East meetings from 1991-2003, with 12 consecutive victories. Since joining the ACC, Boston College holds a 3-2 advantage. Miami, eager to avoid its first 0-4 November since 2007, relies on kicker Andres Borregales, a Groza Award semi-finalist, who boasts 20 field goals this season, just five short of the Miami single-season record set in 2015 by Michael Badgley, now a kicker for the Detroit Lions in the National Football League.

The Hurricanes’ wide receiver, Xavier Restrepo, made headlines with 193 receiving yards last week, tying the seventh-best single-game total in Miami history. In a remarkable ascent, he catapulted from 35th to 21st on Miami’s all-time yardage list (1,501) in just one game. Notably, this meeting marks only the second encounter between the schools in the last 11 seasons, with the third consecutive Miami-Boston College game hosted at Chestnut Hill. The Eagles last visited the Hurricanes in 2011 and are not scheduled to do so again until the 2026 season.

In the historical matchup, Miami currently holds the advantage with a 24-6 record over Boston College.
