At the beginning of the season, Boston sports fans certainly expected that one of their football teams would be heading to Tampa, site of Super Bowl XLIII, for a championship game. The surprise, however, is that while the Patriots are still fighting just to get in the playoffs, it's Boston College that's on its way to Raymond James Stadium this Saturday for the ACC Championship game against Virginia Tech.
Fans wanting to cheer on the Eagles can get tickets and hotel reservations through Boston College. Ticket prices range from $57 to $120. BC is also hosting a pre-game hospitality tailgate with unlimited food and beverage for $50 per person.
Delta and JetBlue offer nonstop flights from Logan Airport to Tampa, and weekend flights on those airlines are running $450 and up. One-stop flights can be found for under $300. In addition, Southwest flies direct to Tampa from both Manchester and Providence, and don't rule out flying into Orlando, which is only a 90-minute drive from Tampa.
If you're sticking around Tampa on Sunday, the New England Patriots Fan Club of West Central Florida is gathering to watch this Sunday's Pats game at KD's Pub at 13949 West Hillsborough Avenue in Tampa. Patriots fans certainly hope it's not their last chance to catch their team in Tampa.

  1. For hotel deals and affordable homes and condos, you can find SUPER BOWL HOTELS at http://www.superbowl-rooms.com or www.14SB.com . They specialize in accommodations and lodging for Olympics, Final Four, Masters and major sports events... I have used them last SUPER BOWL to book a luxury hotel!
