BC, Miami to meet on Thanksgiving Friday

Boston College and Miami have agreed to play their football game this season on the Friday after Thanksgiving, the ACC announced today.

Kickoff will be at 3:30 p.m. at Miami Gardens, Fla. ABC will televise the game nationally.

This will be the first time Boston College and Miami have met on a Friday since the famous game in 1984 that Eagles Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Doug Flutie won with a desperation, last play pass to Gerard Phelan for a touchdown and a 47-45 decision.
