2015 Bowl Series: Boston College vs Alabama

Friday November 20, 2015 (All day)

In the night's most dramatic contest Friday night at the 2015 ACRC Bowl Series, it was a battle of sheer will on the RAC fields as two extremely well-matched teams fought for supremacy. In the end it was The Eagles of Boston College, sealing the deal over Alabama with a late try to cap a see-saw battle that, for a long stretch of the second half, truly seemed like anybody's game.
