BOSTON (AP) - It's a rematch, nine months in the making.
After playing each other to finish last season, Boston College and Miami will open this year the same way: head-to-head, this time in Chestnut Hill, an odd scheduling quirk that is forcing both coaches to remember their disappointing 2011 seasons.
BC went 4-8 last year, going 3-5 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Miami went 6-6, including a 24-17 loss to the Eagles in the season finale.
It was BC's first victory over the Hurricanes in Miami since Doug Flutie's desperation pass in 1984.
But both coaches say last year doesn't matter.
Kickoff on Saturday is 3:30 p.m.
