Tracking BC's bowl week via social media

By Jack McCluskey

Couldn’t make it to Shreveport, La., for Boston College’s matchup with Arizona in the AdvoCare V100 Bowl (Tuesday, 12:30 p.m., ESPN)? Here’s an idea of what the Eagles’ week has been like, via social media.

The trip started two days after Christmas:

Once on the ground, the festivities (and the work) kicked off with media sessions:

And practice sessions:

But don’t worry, Eagles fans, there was time to enjoy some bowl-related activities too:

The Eagles took a trip to Barksdale Air Force Base on Saturday, where they checked out the equipment:

Later, a few Eagles tried their hands as a NASCAR pit crew:

Both teams enter with a 7-5 record, with the Eagles looking for their first bowl win in six years.
