College football is an afterthought
Boston is a college hockey town, and college football flies below the radar. But there is one famous football play you ought to know. It was the day after Thanksgiving in 1984, and Doug Flutie was quarterbacking for BC. The opposing Miami Hurricanes had just scored in the final minute to take a 45-41 lead, but it was Flutie's time to shine. With good pass protection, Flutie unleashed a hail mary pass that was caught by Gerard Phelan as time expired for the win. It is one of the most famous plays in college football history.
