The Eagles finished their 2014 regular season with a 28-7 win over Syracuse on Saturday, November 29. It was a nice post-Thanksgiving treat. Now BC waits to learn what bowl game awaits them and Eagles fans.
While quarterback Tyler Murphy ran for a below-average 20 yards in the game, it was enough to give him 1,079 yards for the season and, thereby, the ACC record for rushing by a quarterback in a season. Murphy had already exceeded the record for career rushing by a BC quarterback, held by Doug Flutie ’84.
Flutie, then-Coach Jack Bicknell, and other members of the 1984 staff and team were honored at the Syracuse game in recognition of the 30th anniversary of the team’s success, including the iconic pass thrown by Flutie to win the Miami game and his winning the Heisman Trophy that year.
Here are video highlights from the game and post-game statements from Coach Addazio and Tyler Murphy.

At “where the turf meets the surf,” Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, San Diego Eagles enjoyed a day at the races Sunday, November 9. More than 20 members of the San Diego Chapter, as well as friends and spouses, enjoyed the pleasures of a suite sponsored by Wendy and Ken Roos, ’85, P’16. Several folks were new to a BC Alumni San Diego event and it was great to have them there.
The sixth race of the day was named in honor of Boston College Alumni, and two chapter representatives, Bill McDonald ’68 and Chris Lamb MS’08, presented, on behalf of the racetrack, a bottle of bourbon and flowers to the team of the winning horse.
Here are some additional photos from the event.
Looks as if Ken Roos ’85 P’16, Susan and Greg Cortese JD’74, are watching a winner.
