The Orange (3-8, 1-6) have lost eight straight, resulting in the firing of coach Scott Shafer on Monday.“I don’t look at is as a losing streak and all those negative connotations,” said BC coach Steve Addazio. “We are not happy we have three wins right now.

Syracuse finished 4-8 and 2-6 in coach Scott Shafer’s last game.
SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Scott Shafer's voice began to break almost as soon as he took the podium for his final press conference at Syracuse.Unable to continue after not much more than minute as his voice cracked and tears welled in his eyes, Shafer looked up one last time and said: "God bless this community and go Orange! That's it."Shafer then disappeared into a hallway in the bowels of the Carrier Dome, his three-year run at Syracuse done after one final victory on Saturday.At least he went out in style.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Notre Dame quarterback DeShone Kizer threw three interceptions last week. He knows more is expected when the fourth-ranked Fighting Irish play No. 13 Stanford with a possible playoff berth at stake Saturday.The 6-foot-4, 230-pound sophomore is a big reason why the Irish (10-1, No. 6 CFP) remain in playoff contention, but he's coming off his worst performance of the season — he barely completed half of his season-high 38 passes and looked befuddled at times by the Boston College defense in a 19-16 victory.

Boston College freshman quarterback John Fadule must clear a mandatory concussion protocol before he can resume practice on Tuesday in preparation for the Eagles' season finale on Saturday in Syracuse.Fadule took a blow to the head at the end of a 23-yard run late in the fourth quarter of Saturday night’s 19-16 loss to Notre Dame at Fenway Park.
Boston College used physicality and opportunism to turn Notre Dame’s Shamrock Series spectacle into a grinding football game.The Eagles forced five turnovers and scored twice in the fourth quarter before falling 19-16 to No. 4 Notre Dame in front of 38,684 at Fenway Park last night.Notre Dame, which was the home team, improved to 10-1 and likely held onto a spot in the FBS four-team playoff picture. The Eagles fell to 3-8 with their seventh straight loss and close out the season next Saturday at Syracuse.
Sharing is caring, except when it comes to real estate on a football sideline.The most entertaining battle didn’t happen in trenches between Notre Dame and Boston College, it occurred on the sideline. The two teams jockeyed for position and spent most of the night trying to figure out how to disguise their signals while on the same sideline in the outfield behind shortstop at Fenway Park.
I have vague memories of going to a few Patriots games at Fenway Park when I was a kid. There was a Buffalo game, I think, and a Chargers game. Pretty sure it rained a lot during the Chargers game.What I do remember, and this thought popped into my head as I entered Fenway Park for last night’s Notre Dame-Boston College showdown, is that the Red Sox never seemed to put out the good china back when the Patriots were renting the joint.
All you need to know about the first half of the Harvard-Boston College basketball game today came during a timeout.With the game tied at 13 a little more than halfway through the period, the modest crowd managed its biggest cheer of the half when a student in a Boston College sweatshirt hit a half-court heave on his third and final attempt to pocket $300.
