They will play at Louisville on March 17, they will host Pittsburgh on March 30, the top-ranked Wake Forest Demon Deacons on April 7, and Miami on May 11 on the ACC Network.

Bill O'Brien closing in on Boston College job?

There are reports swirling out of Boston that former Houston Texas head coach and New England Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien is closing in on the Boston College job to replace Jeff Hafley who left to become the defensive coordinator of the Green Bay Packers.

O'Brien was recently hired as the offensive coordinator at Ohio State and if he does in fact decide to come to Boston College, it wouldn't be a surprise as he grew up in the Boston area and it's likely that a lot of the players currently there will decide to return in 2024 for him.
