Army releases football schedule for ‘12 season
West Point - The Army Athletic Association and Boston College have announced an agreement to exchange home dates for their scheduled meetings in 2012 and 2013. The Eagles will now visit Michie Stadium on Oct. 6, 2012 with the Black Knights traveling to Chestnut Hill on Oct. 5, 2013.
The Black Knights will have seven games at West Point in 2012. Army also hosts Northern Illinois (Sept. 15), Stony Brook (Sept. 29), Kent State (Oct. 13), Ball State (Oct. 27), Air Force (Nov. 3) and Temple (Nov. 17). Army has not played seven games at Michie Stadium since the 1994 season.
“With the latest round of conference realignment and the additions to the Atlantic Coast Conference, we felt it was in the best interests of both programs to make this schedule change,” Army Director of Athletics Boo Corrigan said. “We couldn’t be more pleased to add Boston College to our already exciting home schedule next year.”
Army and Boston College have met 36 times since 1917. The last meeting came during the 2007 season in Chestnut Hill. The Eagles’ last trip to West Point was in 2000.
