Among those weathering the intermittent drizzles and 45-degree chills was former BC standout linebacker Mark Herzlich, who has fond memories from the last time ‘GameDay’ rolled through Chestnut Hill in 2009.
After revealing in May of that year he had been diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, Herzlich shared on the ‘GameDay’ set in October that his doctor was “99-percent sure” he was cancer-free.
Framed by academic buildings featuring iconic Collegiate Gothic architecture, the bundled sea of maroon and gold brought the noise at every opportunity.
Dillon, who was initially listed as questionable with an ankle injury, is expected to play a critical role in BC’s attempt to pull off an upset.
Though Corso predicted quarterback Trevor Lawrence and the Tigers will remain undefeated, Howard and guest picker, actor and 1992 BC graduate Chris O’Donnell, both went with the underdog Eagles.
