Eagles Seek Anniversary Win

Raj’s alma mater opposes eighteenth ranked Clemson.

No. 18 Clemson visits Boston College for the first time in 23 years Saturday as both schools open their Atlantic Coast Conference slate.

Clemson (1-0) has not visited Alumni Stadium since 1983, when Doug Flutie was at the controls for Boston College (1-0), guiding the Eagles to a 31-16 victory. The teams were in different conferences and rarely crossed paths.

Now both schools are in the ACC's Atlantic Division and will be playing every year. Last season, Boston College registered its first win in its new conference with a 16-13 overtime victory in Death Valley on linebacker Brian Toal's rushing touchdown.
