Boston College

Boston College was founded in 1863 by the Society of Jesus to serve the sons of Boston’s Irish immigrants and was the first institution of higher education to be founded in the city of Boston. Today, it is one of the foremost universities in the nation, with a coeducational enrollment of nearly 14,700 undergraduate and graduate students. BC boasts a rich American football tradition that includes 24 postseason bowl games, a Heisman Trophy winner (Doug Flutie) and nine members of the National Football Foundation College Football Hall of Fame. The Eagles are coached by Steve Addazio, who has led the team to two consecutive postseason bowl games since becoming head coach in 2013.  BC has, in fact, participated in a postseason bowl game in 14 of the last 16 seasons. We Are BC
