The Pinstripe Bowl has already made BC a winner

We all want BC to beat Penn State, but the Pinstripe Bowl is already a huge positive for BC. By selling out our full ticket allotment and the game selling out quickly BC can finally start to change our travel reputation. Technically BC sold our ticket allotment for the 2007 Champs Bowl, but I know for that game we gave some tickets away to local charities and Catholic churches....

The lowdown on the Pinstripe Bowl

Facing Penn State in the Pinstripe Bowl is about the best way we could have ended a 7-5 season in Year 2. The bowl lacks history, warm weather or even a great date, but it provides a few important opportunities for BC.1. The game is very winnable. Penn State's best win was against Rutgers. Good showings against Ohio State and Maryland were negated by terrible games against bad Illinois...

Virginia Tech gave up one of the easiest layups ever during tonight’s game against Penn State in Happy Valley. Nittany Lions forward Payton Banks missed the front end of a 1-and-1, and none of the four Hokies players that were in the position to grab the rebound realized what was going on.
