2012 was the first time a college football game had been played in Ireland since 1996. It is now a bi-annual event for the college football world. Last season, Penn State defeated Central Florida and in 2016, Boston College will open the season against Georgia Tech.
It was revealed Tuesday at the ACC Football Kickoff that the two teams will play for a trophy and it is a pretty sweet piece of hardware.
If that doesn’t get you excited for some college football in Ireland, I don’t know what will.
