Mark Hollis, Michigan State athletic director, today announced a future home-and-home football series between the Spartans and Boston College Eagles.

The Spartans will travel to Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts for the first matchup on Sept. 21, 2024 at Alumni Stadium. The following year, the Eagles are set to make the trip to Spartan Stadium on Sept. 20, 2025.

There isn’t a ton of history between the two programs, having last met is the 2007 Champs Sports Bowl (Yes, that is Javon Ringer in that very game in this story’s feature image), with BC winning 24-21.

Overall, the Eagles lead the all-time series 4-1-1. The first matchup actually took place way back in 1935, with the Eagles getting an 18-6 win. The Spartans’ lone win came in 1995, with a 25-21 victory. BC also won games in 1946 and 1992, with the tie occurring in 1936.

In addition to the tie, the games between the two schools have been relatively close, with the last two decided by five points or less and the biggest margin of victory throughout the series at only 14 points.

Other future non-conference home-and-home series for Michigan State include Arizona State in 2018 and 2019, Miami (FL) in 2020 and 2021 and Boise State in 2022 and 2023.

Start hitting the weights now, middle schoolers.
