Cincinnati Bearcats Boston College Eagles live score starts on 2.1.2020. at 20:00 UTC time in NCAA FBS, NCAA Bowls – USA.
Boston College Eagles (6-6, 4-4 ACC)
Boston College (6-6) plays its fifth bowl during the seven-year era of Steve Adagio, which ended earlier this season when Addagio was fired. Head coach Rich Gannell will be the interim head coach in the bowl game. Jeff Huffley, Ohio Defense Coordinator, was hired instead of Adagio. Heffley was a defensive coordinator in Ohio and admitted that he had no plans to leave Columbus after just one season. “But when he opened, he felt special, he felt good,” said Heffley at his opening press conference.
Cincinnati Bearcats (10-3, 7-1 AAC)
Cincinnati (10-3) is looking for his second consecutive season with 11 wins. Only the Bearcats lost this season in Ohio very early and then in Memphis at the American Athletics Championships. This will be Luke Fikkell’s second duel in the third year as head coach. Cincinnati defeated Virginia Tech 35-31 in the Battle Bowl last season, Fickel’s first victory as head coach. Michael Warren II threw 166 yards and two points in last year’s bowl victory over the Hokies. Warren followed this up with his second 1000-yard straight season in 2019 with 33 touches.

Cincinnati Bearcats vs Boston College Eagles – Prediction
Boston College needed a victory over Pittsburgh with a score of 26-19 in the final game to become a suitable player. And, yes, this is the team that Clemson 59-7, Notre Dame 40-7 and Kansas 48-24 placed in Chestnut Hill as a favorite with 21 points.
That September loss by Jayhawks was probably the last nail in the coffin for Steve Adagio, who was fired on December 1, even though he reached the postseason in six of his seven seasons at the helm.
But things are about the Eagles. The current Ohio State Defense Coordinator, Jeff Huffley, has been appointed a new head coach. He will stay with Buckeyes during their current college playoff run, but this rental presents an interesting storyline for the Birmingham Cup when Fickell once served in the same position at Columbus.
BC’s victory at the end of the season over Panthers, combined with what seems like a great rental, should give a sense of calm to a program that has experienced many ups and downs this season.
Also, remember what happened last year? BC. it was decided to play in the Boyce State in the First Return Ball in Dallas before lightning canceled the game. Extra motivation! Given all these factors, I think a relatively close game will take place on January 2.
