UMass trolls Doug Flutie and his statue
By Brett Edgerton
When one thinks of in-state rivalries in college football, Boston College and Massachusetts isn't exactly top of mind. But we can always get behind a little rivalry hijinks during game week.
In advance of Saturday's matchup between the Eagles and Minutemen at Foxborough's Gillette Stadium, someone -- we're just going to guess a UMass supporter -- decided to go to BC's Alumni Stadium and dress up the statue of the school's most famous football alum: 1984 Heisman Trophy winner Doug Flutie.
Whether they had anything to do with it or not, the UMass program and its mascot were more than happy to point it out to Flutie on Twitter.
