The Boston College Eagles college football team competes as part of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS), representing Boston College in the Atlantic Division of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC). Since the establishment of the team in 1892, Boston College has appeared in 23 bowl games.[1][2] Included in these games are 4 combined appearances in the traditional "big four" bowl games (the Rose, Sugar, Cotton, and Orange), all of which came in their first six bowl appearances.[2][3]Their victory in the 1941 Sugar Bowl over Tennessee gave Boston College a claim on the national championship, having received votes from various selectors. However, the NCAA only lists Minnesota as having won that year.

BC's 13-10 bowl record in 23 bowl games place it 28th in all-time bowl wins.[4]
