Pictures from BC Eagles v Kent State Golden Flashes
We used Groupon to snag some cheap tickets to Boston College v. Kent State Golden Flashes* at Alumni Stadium.
It was a close game in the first half with Boston College up 6-3 at half time but the BC Eagles opened it up in the third quarter, starting with a 23-yard toss from quarterback Dave Shinskie to Bobby Swigert. BC won the game 26-13. Below are a few pictures from the game:
Late in the first half BC drove deep into Golden Flashes territory only to stall short of the end zone. A goal-line shotgun formation is never a good sign:

Boston College has a great student section that brings way more life to the game than the dull crowd at Gillette Stadium does.
One way to keep track of the score is to use a scoreboard. Another is to toss a co-ed in the air:

From where I sat I couldn’t possibly take pictures that would do BC’s marching band justice, but here’s at least a piece of their fine performance:
*Kent State Golden Flashes is the worst name in the history of names. It’s so bad that it doesn’t even sound like a name but rather like four randomly chosen and ordered words that happened to end up on the cover of a brochure. It could have been Golden State Flashes Kent or Kent Golden Flashes State but it came out as Kent State Golden Flashes and that’s what it is.
