After Clemson and Boston College met in Death Valley for three straight seasons from 2019-21, the Tigers will finally return to Chestnut Hill on Saturday, Oct. 8 when the fifth-ranked Tigers face the Eagles in an ACC Atlantic Division contest. Kickoff at Alumni Stadium for ABC’s Saturday Night Football is set for 7:30 p.m. ET. I
n 2020, the altered schedule amid the COVID-19 pandemic turned a planned Boston College home game into a Clemson home game in what turned out to be current Clemson quarterback DJ Uiagalelei’s first career start. Clemson’s most recent visit to Boston was in 2018, when true freshman Trevor Lawrence led the Tigers to a 27-7 win that clinched a division title for Clemson in front of a prime-time national audience on ABC.
This week, Clemson is coming off of conference wins against No. 21/16 Wake Forest and consensus No. 10 NC State. The Tigers are one of only four programs this season with two AP Top 25 victories to their credit, alongside Tennessee, Texas A&M and Texas Tech. Clemson, Alabama and Georgia are the only teams in the country with 3-0 records this season against teams presently over .500. Clemson is also the only program in the country with multiple wins against teams presently in the AP Top 15, as NC State and Wake Forest sit this week at No. 14 and No. 15, respectively.
Dabo Swinney previews the Boston College Game on Oct. 4, 2022 at the Reeves Football Operations Complex.
