Boston College to wear Doug Flutie retro jerseys

Doug Flutie will be remembered as the greatest player to ever step foot on a Boston College field. He will also always be remembered for one of the most memorable plays not just in Eagles’ history, but in all of college football history.

The Eagles surely remember the influence Flutie brought to the team and they certainly remember the Miracle in Miami.

The Eagles will be honoring Flutie this season when they take the field in throwback jerseys that are reminiscent of the same jerseys the team wore during the early 1980’s.

ESPN’s Darren Rovell revealed the retro jerseys via Twitter early Thursday morning.

The game will take place in Fenway Park where the Boston Red Sox play. This is surely going to be a nice way to honor a legendary quarterback and an even better way to further push a big rivalry game between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

The game between the two teams takes place on November 21. This is going to be a great one.
