Is Boston College The Most Underrated BCS Team Of All Time?

Mention the Boston College Eagles in relation to the college football world, and one thing comes to mind. Sports fans from all around will make reference to the 1984 game against the Miami Hurricanes. You know the story.  The Eagles needed a touchdown to win the game. A few seconds left on the clock. Flutie takes the snap, scrambles around, and tosses a very long pass into the end zone. Some guy (Gerard Phelan for you con-college football experts) caught the ball on what would be later labeled a “Hail Mary” pass. The BC Eagles stunned the Miami Hurricanes 47 – 45. Fans, and not just the ones from Chestnut Hill, will mention this game as one of the best finishes of all time. But wait, Boston College has established some college football prominence over the last few years.
