Venue: Quick Lane Bowl
When: Monday, December 26, 2016 - 2:30 p.m. ET (ESPN)
Where: Ford Field, Detroit, Mich.
Who: Maryland Terrapins vs. Boston College Eagles
At least on paper, it feels like the Quick Lane Bowl should get a respectable bowl matchup each and every season with the ACC playing against the Big Ten. Unfortunately, Power 5 conferences have this problem every single season with teams that beat up on poor non-conference schedules and end up with below average records in their respective conferences to eke into the bowl season at 6-6. The football isn't often great in games like these, and the handicapping is certainly difficult in them. The Quick Lane Bowl is one of those games this year for sure, as the 6-6 Boston College Eagles take on the 6-6 Maryland Terrapins in a battle of offensively-challenged teams who used to reside in the ACC together.
