Eagles draw Hawkeyes in Pinstripe Bowl

The placing was almost irrelevant. So was the opponent.

Boston College, a team that sat at 2-4 after an Oct. 7 home loss to Virginia Tech, is going bowling, with the chance at the program's first eight-win season since 2009.

Turns out it's Iowa, of the Big Ten, in the Dec. 27 Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium.

"We're playing against an outstanding opponent, a classy organization in Iowa," coach Steve Addazio said after the Eagles accepted the bid for what will be their second Pinstripe. "We have a chance to play in one of the elite bowls. We've been there before and we know what it's like."

Addazio, who pledged when his team was 2-4 that things would get better, made it clear how happy he is to be going to New York, the area a vital recruiting spot for BC.

"That's our home base footprint for us," he said. "Part of our footprint includes New Jersey, New York. It's huge for us in recruiting."

As far as the matchup, the Eagles are going against a team that hammered then-No. 5 Ohio State 55-24 and ended its season by snapping a two-game losing a streak with a loud road win at Nebraska.

"All of this is simply fantastic," said Addazio, whose job was said to be in jeopardy before the turnaround. "You look at our team, the makeup of our team, we've got so many guys from the area, so many in recruiting.

"It's so huge to us. And guys that are in our program, guys coming into our program are a huge makeup of our football team."

In Iowa, the Eagles get an opponent that has scored in some games but really isn't an offensive power. Iowa is just 93rd in the country in rushing, 88th in passing and 107th in total offense. Still, the Hawkeyes have a quarterback, Nate Stanley, who has thrown 25 touchdown passes and nine interceptions, a running back, Akrum Wadley, who has run for 1,021 yards and nine TDS and a wide receiver, Nick Easley, who has 50 catches. Tight end Noah Fant has 28 catches, but 10 are for touchdowns.

The Iowa defense, which has to deal with an offense led by freshman running back AJ Dillon, the ACC rookie of the year and while BC has climbed to 24th in the nation, the Hawkeyes are 38th against the run.

"We're playing a very tough Boston College team," said Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz. "I don't know an awful lot about them other than they really finished with a real positive note winning five of the last six ball games. They are playing good football.

"I'm very familiar with Coach Steve Addazio and the kind of teams that he's put together, going back to the days at Temple. It will be a tough, hard-nosed football team and certainly we have some familiarity with Coach (Jim) Reid (BC's defensive coordinator) being there, Jim Reid, who is a tremendous person, tremendous coach, doing a great job on their staff, as well (and used to be at Iowa)."
