The 25th-ranked Hurricanes head north to Chestnut Hill after a bye week as well. In its last game,Miamidropped its first ACC contest of the year in Charlottesville to Virginia, 16-13.

Boston College will recognize the family of Welles Crowther, a former BC lacrosse player, during the game against Miami, in BC’s annual Red Bandana Game.
Crowther is known as the “Man in the Red Bandana” after he saved over a dozen lives in the South Tower of the World Trade Center during the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. He wore a red bandana, which he carried with him and wore during his playing days at the Heights, to protect himself from the smoke and dust.

I was looking at our roster; 6 place kickers listed!!
2 punters listed....both are bad real bad!
I have never seen us so bad in the kicking game....and the kick coverage game ever!
Thomas is very good and even DJ has done well when he was in there....but our kick and punt coverage, kicking FG XP are ....a mystery....poor and there is no excuse!
Lets hope for better!
