2022 Boston College Eagles Football Schedule: Dates, Times, & Analysis

Jeff Hafley returns for his third season as the head coach of the Boston College Eagles with his eyes set on a surprising season.

Phil Jurkovec returns at quarterback, giving the Eagles an experienced starter who possesses true NFL talent and could show vast improvement now, finally healthy. Zay Flowers is one of the ACC’s best receivers, and Patt Garwo returns at running back after going for 1,000 yards a year ago despite beginning the season fourth on the depth chart. The defense allowed only 22.2 points per game last year and possesses one of the best secondaries in the conference. How does the schedule shape up with all of the pieces in place to shine in 2022?

Here’s a look at Boston College’s schedule with dates, times, opponents, and analysis:

Week 1 – vs. Rutgers Scarlet Knights

Week 11 – at North Carolina State Wolfpack

Drawing Notre Dame in the non-conference slate is never easy, and playing on the road even more so. Boston College has won just one of the last nine meetings.

Week 13 – vs. Syracuse Orange

Date: November 26

Time: TBD

Upsets have been rife in this series, so the Eagles must be on high alert for this home finale.
