The bowl announced Sunday that Boston College (7-5, 4-4 ACC), winners of five straight, will meet Nevada (12-1, 7-1 WAC) in the ninth annual bowl game at AT & T Park, home of the Giants in San Francisco, January 9 at 6:00 p.m.
Boston College replaces Pac-10 place in the bowl. The Pac-10 did not have enough bowl eligible teams.
“We look forward to returning to San Francisco for Kraft Bowl against hunger,” Boston College coach Frank Spaziani said in a news release. “Nevada is a great program with a coach and Hall of Fame will be a challenge size for our young football team. This is a deserved reward for our team, who fought his way through adversity to win five straight games at the end of the season. ”
The Wolf Pack has won six times in a row. The teams are both only 13 in the nation who is riding winning streaks of five games or more.
The Eagles made their 12th bowl appearance and second consecutive year in a row in the bowl Kraft, where they lost to USC 24-13 last season. BC made its third appearance in the Bowl Kraft, formerly Emerald Cup.
“We’re excited to bring Boston College back in San Francisco,” Kraft Bowl executive director and co-founder Gary Cavalli said. “They are a first class organization in every respect.”
Nevada appeared sixth straight bowl, adding to his academic record, and seeking to end a sequence of four defeats in bowl games. The Wolf Pack plays in its first January bowl game since the Bowl Harbor, January 1, 1949. Nevada coach Chris Ault said he has not seen a band play BC again, but he knows the Eagles are daunting.
“Play for Boston College is just great,” Ault said Sunday, a day after the Pack finished the regular season with a 35-17 victory at Louisiana Tech and a share of the WAC title. “This is an excellent team football. They have won five straight and have an excellent reputation. I’m looking forward to this game. “
