A bit of news that got lost in the excitement from yesterday, Patrick Towles’ Boston College Eagles defeated Wake Forest to become bowl eligible. Towles threw the go-ahead touchdown pass with 8:03 remaining to help Boston College win 17-14. The Eagles finish the season with a record of 6-6 and 2-6 in the conference while claiming the ACC’s last bowl spot.
Some possibilities for bowl games would be the St. Petersburg Bowl, the Quick Lane Bowl or the Camping Independence Bowl. The Independence Bowl would create a possibility for a Kentucky-Boston College bowl game, as some bowl projections have the Cats heading to Shreveport. This would provide an interesting matchup for Kentucky and Patrick Towles. Towles passed for 5,099 yards, 24 touchdowns and 24 interceptions in his three seasons with the Cats.
